Five Minute Friday- New

Flex your fingers, and let’s play Five Minute Friday.

Where we throw caution (editing, revising, and worrying) to the winds and just write. Without wondering if it’s just right or not.

For five minutes flat. Then link up here

Today’s prompt is:  New… ready? GO!

The sunrise walk this morning reminds me that each day is a new creation…just like me.

Reminds me that I am raised to walk in the newness of life with Christ.  Am I living like new? Or do I carry the trappings and worries and mess that I’ve made around with me into the peaking rays of sun that break over the sidewalk?

Do I really live like new? I think of the crisp clean new shirts that I bought for back to school clothes and the clean white paper in unwritten notebooks. Am I new like that? Unwritten? Un-blemished by what has gone before? Un-tarnished by the wear and tear of life in a broken, fallen world?

Do I believe that “new” is even achievable? To wake up each morning and crucify the old, and put on the new?

Yes, it is.  So, here is my NEW “man”…the one who believes not just IN God, but who believes God.


Now your turn!
