It’s writing prompt time!
If you’re new to the Five Minute Friday writing community, welcome! We’re so glad you’re here!
Every week we gather around a single word prompt, set a timer for five minutes, and freewrite for five minutes flat — no overthinking, no editing, just write!

There are SO many things happening for writers in the next month . . .
This week’s FMF writing prompt is: STRETCH
Setting my timer for five minutes, and . . . go.
In an exciting turn of events, my day job is expanding to include additional responsibilities. While it’s all good things, I’ve found myself lying awake at night wondering how it’s all going to come together.
I feel myself being stretched beyond my normal routine, the familiar and comfortable.
But then I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror as I’m getting ready in the morning and see the stretch marks that remain on my body after two pregnancies.
Sometimes we need to be stretched in order to give birth to new life.
It may be uncomfortable for a while as the new life is being formed and prepared to be delivered, but it will be worth it in the end.
So I’ll ask the Lord to help me carry it well and show me the ways He wants me to prepare for this new thing. And by His grace, all will go smoothly and the growth will only be a blessing in the end.
If you’re in the “growing pains” phase of a new thing, be encouraged. The stretching may not seem pleasant at the time, but He is with You, and He will continue to be faithful to the very end.
