Every week, on Lisa Jo’s Website, she has a Five Minute Friday prompt where we write without inhibition for 5 total minutes. If you would like to join us, visit her site and get the details.

This week’s prompt: Write


I stare at the blank computer screen. All night long I couldn’t sleep because the words kept coming so fast. But now, it’s like they weren’t even there to begin with.

I know that I am supposed to write, but fear is holding me back.

What if I can’t do it?

What if this is not the right thing to do?

How can my words help someone?

It’s at this moment that my fingers tickle and hover above the keys. I blow out a breath and just start typing my story. I feel sick to my stomach because I have so much I want to say, and yet — fear holds me back.

I raise my head after an hour and glance down to see how much I have written, only to discover a half a page. This writing thing is hard. I know what needs to be shared, but fearful of opening my heart and exposing things I have never told anyone before.

But someone, somewhere needs to hear what I have to say. It could set them free.

In the darkness, I pray for God to give me wisdom with my writing. I write a blog post about it. I hit publish. And then the emails come pouring in.

Thank you for sharing your story.

Your words they comforted me.

I know how you feel. Thank you.

Will you pray for me? I am in the same situation too.

It’s then that I know I am on the right path. Writing. It is all I have ever really wanted to do. It is my gift that God has given me. I MUST use this gift to help bring peace to hurting souls.
