Five Minute Friday: Settle

Happy Easter!

He is Risen!

How glorious to celebrate the greatest event in history.

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday community to write for five minutes on the word prompt settle.


I have not read Megyn Kelly’s autobiography, Settle For More, but I resonate with the message.

Apparently, Megyn was inspired by a quote from Dr Phil when he said, “The only difference between you and someone you envy is that you settle for less.”

She took it to heart and started expecting more of herself and her career.

I resonate with that because I believe to my core that we were created for abundant life.

I also believe we experience it much, much less than God intended.

Why is that?

Maybe because we believe lies about ourself.  Or lies about life. Or even lies about God.

Maybe we carry too many worries instead of laying them down.

Maybe we strive and over plan and manipulate when we should be resting, being still and waiting.

Whatever causes it,  I know I want life abundant.

Maybe I won’t be doing it Megyn’s way, but I know I want to settle for more.

    This sounds like a really interesting book! I think I expect too little of myself, but maybe it’s more of a problem of expecting too little of God. If my heart beats for what he wants, I can expect the unexpected and unlimited because he is God.

    ‘Settling for more’ with you because as Ephesians 3:20  states
    ‘ . . . him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,
    according to the power that worketh in us, ‘
