Five Minute Friday: Tell

Today I am joining a beautiful community of writers for the Five Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes for the joy of writing.  No editing or backtracking necessary.  No need to be perfect.  This is where I get to write, letting it all go, allowing the words tucked away deep inside my heart to find their voice.



Come over here, just for a moment.

I want to tell you something.

Do you know that He sees you today?

When you walk through your day wondering if anyone sees your effort underneath all of the mess,

Yes, He sees!

Do you know how beautiful your voice is to Him?

He bends over the balcony of heaven when you speak.
He inclines His ear to your voice.
He listens to your every word.

Do you know how you move His heart?

When you say yes, even through trembling knees and heart beating fast,
even though your faith is blind and you know not the road you should take,
every step, especially the small ones,

they bring you closer to Him.

Do you know He is pleased with you?

Yes, you!

You may feel like a failure at times, a disappointment or less than enough.

But oh how He is pleased with you!

I can see Him now, Your Daddy in heaven,
He’s picking you up and twirling you around,
He says, “Come here, My daughter, I have something to tell you.

You are my joy and I delight in you.

You need not do one more thing to earn My love.
Just simply be.”


Seeking beauty in the ordinary and embracing life to the fullest. Thank you for stopping by and come again soon!
