Today I’m joining Lisa-Jo Baker’sFive Minute Friday where she provides a prompt and we write for five minutes, no editing, just writing. Fun! Today’s prompt: mighty.

Mighty is exciting. I see it’s force in my life and mountains are moved.

Mighty is everyday. I am able to choose joy in the midst of my daily grind and my heart is renewed.

Mighty is hard. It it’s not always easy to recognize the small, mundane tasks that make up life as mighty, but they are. Mighty is folding laundry, wiping noses, cooking dinner.

When we surrender ourselves to the one who is Mighty he pours his strength into the gaps in our lives, where our weakness tells us we’re not good enough, we can’t do this.

Mighty is sufficient.

So today, may you recognize your might and the one who is Mighty. May you be blessed by it.

How do you see mighty in your life? What ways does it manifest itself in the big and small ways?

  1. Thanks for this post! I totally agree. We are mighty is so many ways and yet we don’t always recognize it. Visiting from FMF! 🙂

  2. I totally agree! Sometimes we don’t see how mighty we are because of how small our challenges are…even laundry and dirty dishes! Visiting from FMF!

    • You’re absolutely right. Just because our challenges are small doesn’t mean we’re not mighty! Even the small challenges are important – what would happen if we all stopped cooking and cleaning because they’re not ‘big’ enough challenges?

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. “Mighty is sufficient.” I’m thinking about that one… To see ourselves as mighty and that it would be sufficient. Even if we are ‘just’ moms folding laundry and sweeping the floor.

  4. Love this post and it echoes my own, mighty is being who we are, where we are. I love how you include all the mighty mundane things.

  5. (As I’m sure you’ll notice, now that I’m back in Canada where wifi is abundant, I’m catching up on commenting!)

    You probably won’t be surprised, but I LOVE the idea of free writing from a prompt. It takes a bit of getting used to, especially when you’re picky about things being grammatically correct, but it can be really healthy and freeing. Also, I love what you’ve come up with. Especially the part about it being hard to recognize might and omnipotence in our day-to-day lives.

I'dl like to hear what you think!
