Searching for inspiration, I googled “blog prompt.” That is how I found The One-Minute Writer. I scrolled down until I found the writing prompt for Monday, October 17, 2011:
“Write about a time you were the center of attention, and how you felt about it.”
That one’s easy! It was two days ago, Sunday Oct. 30. At the end of the College/Young Adult Women’s Bible Study, I realized I had forgotten to tell them that I had gotten the job at JoAnn’s Fabric and Crafts. I blurted it out, and the entire group burst into cheers and applause.
I was humbled, grateful, and encouraged by their response. My soul was nourished by their care and concern. A good example of Romans 12:10: “Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor.”
It made me want to reciprocate and to renew my committment to pray for their hearts concerns, care for them, and encourage them.
