This week’s FMF writing prompt is: ASPIRE




I am a doer, but I am not driven.

I like to be busy and productive, but I wouldn’t say I have that “one thing” that I aspire to do with my life or say that I’ve accomplished.

I’ve never had a desire to run a marathon (or even a 5k, for that matter . . . ha!), summit a mountain, sing in a production, or win a competition.

I have adopted, but I didn’t really dream of adopting when I was younger.

I have homeschooled, but it was just something we did that met a need at the time.

I have written books, but I never really aspired to be an author.

Sometimes I wonder . . . do I not care enough? Should I have bigger dreams and goals? Have I settled for “less”?

Then I remember that the things of this world will fade away. Truly, the greatest thing I can aspire to — with the help of the Holy Spirit, of course — is to follow hard after my God and to seek to honor Him in all I do. An impossible calling without Christ . . . but He is able.
