A Blank Page

This post is written to link with Five Minute Friday: write for five minutes on a one-word prompt.  The prompt today is “potential.”


A blank page sits before me- so much potential.

My mind is buzzing with thoughts.  At last, the vague idea that has been floating around in my head for the last year has solidified into something concrete, and I’m excited.

I think it has potential.

I long for it to bring hope to those in hopeless situations, by pointing them to the Hope, to speak truth that will help combat the lies.  I hope it will encourage people.

But I’m only too conscious of the work that lies ahead.

Just now there is potential, but for the potential to be realised will take a lot of hard work, a sacrifice of time and effort.

Will it be worth it?  Am I even up to the task?  Is it an idea worth pursuing?

I’m not sure, but there’s only one way to find out.

Start writing.  Fill the page.  See what happens.

Have a shot at turning the potential into reality.

It’s worth a try!

If you missed my post on Monday, I’m going to be taking a step back from the blog during October to try to devote some time to turning this potential idea into reality.  You can read more here.  I may still drop in for Five Minute Friday some weeks though!

  1. Thank you so much for dropping by and commenting on my spanky new blog.

    Your words and cadence in this post brought to mind one of my favorite poets.

    Come, fill the Cup, in the fire of Spring
    Your Winter-garment of Repentance fling:
    The Bird of Time has but a little way
    To flutter–and the Bird is on the Wing

    ― Omar Khayyam, The Ruba’iyat of Omar Khayyam

  2. “Start writing. Fill the page. See what happens.” Amen! Isn’t that what God calls us to do–to step out and speak truth with faithfulness and in His strength? He’ll equip you for the Kingdom work He’s called you to do. I love the words God spoke to Moses in Exodus 4:11-12. Keep writing!
