Okay, Leah, I’ve been thinking you have me stumped with this one. Perhaps that is what our little fellow feels: stumped! Friends, I have been visiting at The LOFT this morning as I often do on Wednesdays. Leah’s Loft prompt this week, our writing opportunity, is this picture.
Leah’s posting regarding it is a good one. Click here to read and then scroll down the page to link up with some other offerings at The LOFT.
Now. What do I have to say about this?
Yep. I am.
I could sit out over at the LOFT and just read some capable writers and perhaps I’d get some ideas but I’m not so sure that’s the fair thing to do. Hmmm.
It seems to me our fellow is sitting something out. Perhaps he doesn’t want to put on that blue and white plaid shirt laying there. 🙂
Perhaps he does not like the plaid and thinks it would not bring out his best side. (I’m grasping here you know?) Ever done that? I don’t have a thing to wear so I’m not going! I’ll just sit this one out. I admit sitting some things out is wisdom.
When we are tempted to sit something out, do we ask ourselves why? Is it because it’s out of our comfort zone? And if it is, is it possible we need to shake off the drag bag over our heads and get out there?
I think the first question I should ask when I am thinking it is time for a sit-out is does it line up with Scripture? Has GOD already said NO?
If He has, problem solved, and I can sit; in fact, I better sit!
But what if Scripture gives the green light? Is that enough to get me up and on my feet? Not necessarily. I need one more prompt to get me up — do I have a HOLY SPIRIT nudge within? Yes?
Then, Girl, you better get up and put that plaid shirt on and get out that door! 🙂
So, what am I trying to sit out on?
That was fun! Thanks, Leah. 🙂

I think you did an amazing job for being ‘stumped’!
I find a lot of times I want to do some much more than God has for me right now, and it’s so hard not to say ‘yes’ to everything for me! Thanks for the great reminder and thanks for linking up at the Loft!
I love how you took this prompt and went with it. I know I’ve wanted to sit things out on more than one occasion. Even today I am walking a path of God’s leading me to sit something out. It is a bit of a difficult obedience, but I know that it is His will. Thanks for linking up this post, Kathie.
It’s my pleasure, Leah. Thank you for the Loft! Knowing it is His will is the strength key to sitting out especially when sitting out is NOT what you want to do. Prayers for you, my Friend.
I loved your take on this picture! It’s awesome to see how different people look at things.
I’ve often wanted to sit out longer than I was supposed to ….
Thanks for sharing at The Loft!
Thank you for visiting with me. I enjoy the Loft so much. Thank you for hosting as well. 🙂
