Five Minute Friday: "Messenger."

Thanks to Lisa-Jo Baker at Five Minute Friday for the prompts.
I can't think of a song or scripture or anything appropriate for this one.  Hmmm... the first thing that comes to mind is "don't shoot the messenger."  But that will never do.
Tick, tock, tick, tock...
What am I a messenger of?  I hope that it is that God loves me and cares for me even when I don't "do" Christianity right.  I hope that I am a messenger of optimism--there's enough pessimism in this world.  I hope that I am a messenger of humor and healthy sarcasm.  People without a sense of humor scare me.
How do I disseminate the message?  Through spoken and written words, through music.  I've been looking for a way to display my life's message through my art without writing scriptures or sayings on everything.  Nothing wrong with that; it's just not me.
Who can receive me as the messenger?  That's the crux of the matter,  I need to be a more fit messenger in every way possible.  There's so much that needs to change before I can be an effective messenger of God's goodness. Yes, it's fine if me, as the messenger, has dealt with pain.  I just don't think it's a good idea to continue to do so.


  1. Shannon, I struggle being a fit messenger as well. But thanks be to God that inspite of us, He is still able to use us as His messengers. Blessings to you!
