Five Minute Friday – Imagine

On Fridays I link to Lisa Jo Baker and take only 5 minute to write a post. Great for making me to sit and write with total freedom. Here goes:


Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20, NIV)

This Scripture from Ephesians has become a very powerful Scripture in my life. There are so many times that I say to myself, “I can’t do this”. But then I remember that I am not doing it – He is. Whenever I feel like I won’t have an idea in my head – He does. Whenever I feel I can’t learn another social media task; a self-hosted plugin; a marketing tool, I remember that if God wants me to know this He will show me the way.

I can imagine and dream all that I want. If what I am dreaming is in God’s will then all will come true.

I see my imagination growing as I continue to try new art projects, as I look around me at nature and as I look at all that God is doing around me. Imagine that! God is at work in our world. We only need to look for it.

Tadeo Turtle was a dream that became a reality. I speak about how Tadeo came to be on an interview at Christian Homeschool Moms.

God wants us to dream dreams; to seek beyond ourselves; to reach out and try things that others say might be impossible. Because God is the God of the impossible.

Jesus replied, “What is impossible with man is possible with God (Luke 18:27, NIV).

I challenge anyone who has a dream – to dream big and ask God into your dreams.

What dreams do you have? Please comment and I will pray for your dreams.

Have a wonderful weekend.



Linking in with Lisa-Jo Baker and Five Minute Fridays.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my blog footer}
3. Go leave some comment props for the five minute artist who linked up before you {and if you love us, consider turning off word verification for the day to make it easier for folks to say howdy}

It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.




  1. Hi Janis, oh this is so true. I have found that when I worry or strive to make something happen, I jump right back into the flesh and then nothing seems to work the way I wanted it to. But when I give it over in Pappa’s hands things seem to work smoothly!!! But, it takes us quite a long time to learn this lesson.
    Much love XX

  2. That was a nice comment!I almost cried because it was so good! My dream is that I will own a horse and be a vet when I grow up.

  3. Janis,

    I just retired and I want to resume writing again and create a blog. My entire life is Jesus and I relay totally upon Him.

    I also long to learn photography. I also love Ann Voskamp, and count 1000 gifts.

    I have worked as a bookkeeper in our family business, but my creative side needs to take wings and fly.

    I ask you to join me in prayer, in Jesus’ Name , if it be His holy will.

    Everything is Grace,

    Colleen Comito
