**This is the first week I’m a part of the Five Minute Friday blog posts! The following post is five minutes into my thoughts on the subject “Dive.”

5minutefriday

I love diving into a new project. I feel exhilarated when I decide on that new thing to write about or design..

…..And yet in my mind right now I’m saying “big woop”, because what am I doing with my ideas? How are they helping anyone else? How are they pointing to my Savior? The Bible says that whatever I do should point to Him and yet I work so hard and for what? To make man proud of me. I’m diving into the quicksand of the world’s acceptance; because you see we will never be good enough for the world. There is always someone better, always something new to aspire too. We will never be the best, we will never be number one, even though isn’t that what we strive for everyday? We want to be the best career woman, the best mom, the best wife, the best friend, the best…at everything. Then, when we realize that isn’t possible, we realize just how small and insignificant we really are in this world. In that moment we realize our need for a Savior.  In that moment we realize what we should really be diving into is what God has set out for us, not into our own pool of pride-filled accomplishments that have no eternal impact.
