Safe // Five Minute Friday
[wc_box color=”secondary” text_align=”left”]Thrilled to be writing among the beautiful Five Minute Friday community. This is where we write for just five minutes, on a word prompt. We don’t worry about perfection or making it just right, but rather allow the words to flow freely without over thinking. If you’ve never written for the Five Minute Friday, come join us. You will be glad you did![/wc_box]
It’s late at night and the darkness has overwhelmed me.
I’d run toward the light, but there isn’t any to be found.
I put my hand in front of my face. Surely there must be light somewhere.
My breath becomes labored as I wade through the thick, dark fog that surrounds me.
I bump into rocks, sharp objects, things that would threaten to harm me.
I wander aimlessly. Will I ever come to the end?
I am left beaten and bruised from encounters with those who sought to kill, steal and destroy.
Just when I feel faint and am ready to give up, there it is, a glimmer of hope.
I muster up the strength to rise up and walk toward the light.
With each step, it grows brighter. With each step, I grow stronger.
When I come to the end of the vast tunnel of darkness, it disappears, in an instant.
All that remains is a light so bright that I cannot look upon it.
But I know Who is there, waiting for me.
All I need to do is crawl up into His lap, and there I am safe.
I’ve come to the end of myself and now I am safe in the arms of the One who holds me.
You who sit down in the High God’s presence,
spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow,
Say this: “God, you’re my refuge.
I trust in you and I’m safe!”
That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps,
shields you from deadly hazards.
His huge outstretched arms protect you—
under them you’re perfectly safe;
his arms fend off all harm.
(Psalm 91:1-4 MSG)
*I have no idea where this one came from. It’s so much different than my normal writing. That is what I love about Five Minute Fridays. You never know what you are going to create in just five minutes.
