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!
There is a lot going on in my life, as I am sure there is in yours. But one thing has been missing from my day more often than I care to admit. The Word of God that breathes life to my soul is the first thing that goes when I’m struggling. Not because I don’t love Him. Not because I don’t crave His truth. But when the seasons ebb harder and the road gets rocky, I have a hard time focusing and the truth hits bumps along the way and my heart closes up and truth bounces off and I forget to lay hold.
I feel weak from the mundaneness of life. I feel beat up from the disappointments that still resound with words that tell me that perhaps I’m really not enough. But it’s in my weakness, when I’m about to break, that I must fully embrace the truth. His Word is life to my weakened soul. His Word breathes hope to my spirit and sends light radiating through the darkness to combat the lies. His Word brings strength and causes me to stand tall where I no longer feel overcome by weakness.His Word brings strength and causes me to stand tall where I am no longer overcome by weakness.… Click To Tweet
It’s Christ IN me the hope of glory. His power is perfected in my weakness.
My grace is enough; it’s all you need.
My strength comes into its own in your weakness.
(2 Corinthians 12:9 MSG)
I need Him today friend. I can’t do all that I do without Him. I can’t get up and keep going without His Word on my lips and in my heart. I am thankful for His grace, again and again, when I choose to start my day without Him. I’m thankful that He reminds me that He’s here and that the burdens I carry aren’t mine to bare.
How are you doing today? How can I pray for you?
