Woah… it’s late Friday night And I almost forgot to post my YAY!!! It’s Friday Five minute Friday! If you have no idea what than means… well firstly welcome… and secondly you can read about it with the hyperlink above… or you can read my last one here…
Today’s prompt is abandon… and I have 5 minutes to write about it… no guidelines, no pressure (other than the clock…) but just a reason to post something… here we go
So… the prompt is here and I am lost for words… abandon is such a loaded word, such a heavy word… yet thankfully one that I don’t really understand in full. I don’t think there has ever been a time I have ever felt abandoned… I am blessed, I have been surrounded by good, loving people all my life… I belong… I am not alone… I also know the one who knows me best… I know I am never alone because I walk with Jesus.
Yet there is another type of abandon that keeps popping into my mind as I type… the type of abandonment the Hillsong song ‘The Stand’ takes about:
‘I’ll stand, with arms high and heart abandoned,
In awe of the one who gave it all,
I stand, my soul lord to you surrendered
All I am is yours’
An abandonment by choice, a decision to walk away from my desires and to step into His with no other agenda…
I guess I wasn’t lost for words after all… I am thankful not to be abandoned and to be able to stand abandoned from the world in His glory…

Abandoned – unhindered. O! Yes, Lord! Your neighbor at Kate’s. (#18)
I enjoyed reading your reflections and how you picked upon the two different meanings of abandon. Thanks for visiting my post too!
Just thanks! Always challenged by your 5 minutes xx
