Five Minute Friday: Dive

It’s Five Minute Friday!

“Let go, I’m diving in…”

Isn’t that some Christian song that gets overplayed on my local station?  I think so.  In fact, now I’m thinking it’s Steven Curtis Chapman, who I do love, so maybe it’s not so overplayed, but rather a repetition I need to hear.

Let go.  You have to let go to dive.  To get there.

I am struggling with the letting go.  With the final release of toes and head and heart and accepting what I am learning about myself each and every day.

I can’t please everyone.  I can’t agree with everyone.  I can’t make nice in every situation and in every social circle and in every political arena.

Not that I’m surrounded my many of those.

But I can’t.  I have to let that go if I’m going to truly dive in to what could be an amazing, beautiful, incredible, surrendered life.

I need to dive deeper into the Word, into the reflection, into the quiet.

I need to let go of insecurity and perfection and the idea that anything that comes to me is something that I deserve, that I have earned.

I’m taking a plunge today at my local MOPS group.  I’m telling some of my story, some the most raw parts that I’ve published here, but they’ll probably get an even deeper admission.  A true dive into where I’ve really been.

Plunge is our MOPS theme this year….going deeper….letting go.  Dive.

  1. I am here from Gypsy Mama's Five Minute Friday. I'm glad I got to read your post. MOPS is a wonderful organization. I'm sure your story will touch others. Yes, dive in and share with others. Nothing like taking that plunge.

    Blessings and love,


  2. Way to take Lisa-Jo's prompt all the way! Praying that your time of sharing today will bring grace and peace to all that hear it. Your diving will make waves, my friend!
