Five Minute Friday - Unexpected

Joining Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday.  Time to stop, drop and write.  No editing, no overthinking or second guessing.    

Today she asks for five minutes on...


Ready? GO!

It's natural - 

to make plans

to set goals

to envision the future.  

I made them, set them, envisioned it.  

And yet...

in a moment

just one phone call

and it's all moot.

One word, or two

and everything changes.  

Life is forced to


This was not my plan.  

But here I am.  Here I am.  

Sitting.  Listening.  

Believing that this is not something to "make the most of."

No, this is bigger than that. 

Bigger than what I can cram into this 5-minute post.  

I'll consider for a minute:  what if the unexpected is what I'm intended for.  

My purpose.



Beyond my expectation, filled to overflowing kind of purpose.

Could it be?  



  1. Oh just this,

    "I'll consider for a minute: what if the unexpected is what I'm intended for.
    My purpose. Unplanned."

    Beautiful! What precious and unexpected plans God often has for us, things we wouldn't choose, but gifts still, in His plan, in His timing.... thank you for this! Blessings, friend.

  2. This is lovely and so heard your heart in these words. Hoping its more than you can dream or imagine.
