Welcome back to Five Minute Friday! Five Minute Friday is a weekly linkup hosted by Kate Motaung. Every week, Kate posts a prompt, and participants have five minutes to write about it. If you missed last week’s post REFINE, click that link. This week’s topic is CONTROL.

Start the clock!

Control. We crave it. We long for it. We strive for it. Yet, for the most part, it eludes us.

There are so many things in life we cannot control. Sometimes this frustrates me, and other times it fills me with joy, because I know the life that has been set out before me is so much better than one I could dream up on my own. The fact is, I am not in control, and thank God I don’t have to be.

Let us let go of this desire for control and give it all up to Him. Unclench your fist, let go of the stress and know He is good. He is always good.


I am still getting used to reading a word then writing for five minutes about it without worrying what it is I am writing. To be honest, in the moment it stresses me out more than it should! I am loving this exercise though, and I hope to keep getting better at it.

    Five Minute Friday still stresses me out, too. May we unclench our fist in that regard, too! Well done!
