Today, I’m trying something new. I am joining other writers and linking up with Lisa Jo Baker for her Five Minute Friday link up. Lisa Jo gives us a word prompt and we set our timers and write for only 5 minutes without over thinking and no editing.
Now if my kids will just give me 5 minutes today’s word prompt is Broken.
Alright timer is set… On my mark… Get Set… Go…
Ha Ha okay so this is my first time to do this and it wasn’t as easy as it looks. LOL I only had one paragraph and it was terrible. So I know. I know… But I’m going to try that again. LOL I guess my brain was broken. 😉
Here we go again. Timer is set. Ready… Set… Go…
If it’s not broken don’t fix it. However in our world today we need to be aware of things that are broken. If we don’t realize we have an area in our life that is broken we will never fix it. We need to know when we are broken.
It’s like a chair that has a broken leg. If we don’t realize that chair is broken then we won’t fix it. We might sit down in it and wind up broken ourselves. On the other hand if we saw that it is broken but don’t fix it and just turn a blind eye to the problem then someone else might be hurt by our lack of caring.
We need to see those things in our lives too. We need to know the areas that are broken in our lives. It reminds me of the verse where Jesus taught we need to remove the beam from our own eye before we can remove the speck that is in our brother’s eye.
Before we can help other broken people we need to realize where we are broken. It is good to help others but we first need to work on our own broken areas.
Okay, I’m leaving that one. LOL I don’t think it was too bad for my first time.

Have you ever come to the realization in your life that there was something broken and took the steps necessary to fix it? As always feel free to share with me in the comments.
“And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:3-5)Like
