Today is my first time participating in the Five Minute Friday linkup, started by Lisa Jo Baker and now carried on by Kate Motaung. Every week, Kate posts a prompt, and participants have five minutes to write about it. The point is to write for five minutes and not worry about editing, mistakes or overthinking the topic. Just write! This week’s topic is REFINE.
Refine: to remove impurities or unwanted elements from (a substance), typically as part of an industrial process.
-to improve (something) by making small changes, in particular make (an idea, theory, or method) more subtle and accurate.
Start the clock!
I am currently in a season of waiting. Waiting to see what the next path is, waiting to see where we will end up and what our future might look like. Trials and struggles and frustrations often feel so overwhelming, I am anxious to get to the next stage just to get through to the other side.
But doesn’t every stage of life have its own set of worries and troubles? Learning from our hardships is so important in the refinery process of our lives, because we can take what we learned and not only move forward but grow and improve and prepare for whatever comes next.
