Five Minute Friday – Imagine


So… five minutes of unedited, non stop writing on this week’s given theme Imagine… well imagine that… here we go.

All my life I thought day-dreaming was wrong. I remember in school I would get in trouble for not paying attention. OK so I SHOULD have been paying attention but I got the wrong end of the stick. It was like I was getting into trouble for having dreams and thinking about wanting more than I had.

And so because of that and the fact that I’m a bit of a rebel, I did it a lot.
There are a few verses about imagining that come to mind when I dwell on this.

Ephesians 3:20,21
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

1 Corinthians  2:6
‘no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him.’

I love that  there is an acknowledgement of imagining in the Bible; that God knows we will do it. In both of those verses it’s like He is saying… ‘Go on. Think of it. Think of the biggest, best, greatest, fastest most outrageously wonderful. Then multiply that by some number – you’re nowhere near what I can do, what I have in store for you, what I have prepared for you.’ 

Isn’t that great!?

  2. Both of those are verses I love (I love that whole prayer in Ephesians 3, actually!)

    This:

    THAT was super great. Thank you for putting it that way – I needed to hear it said that way today. So thanks!

  3. I love your unrestrained enthusiasm! I used to get in trouble for daydreaming in school too. 🙂 I’ve been reading FMF posts for about an hour and I think I will make this my last one for the night because it will leave me with a big old smile on my face! Thank you!

    1. And since I know what time zone she’s in, and it nearing morning there, I bet your sweet comment to her is going to make her wake up with a smile on her face! 🙂

      The blogging community – FMF and (in)Courage, especially – are full of so many great people!
