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.
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 head 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 DADDY 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. 🙂
