It’s Friday again, and that means it’s time for Five Minute Friday, hosted by The Gypsy Mama. Each week, a word is posted as a writing prompt. Write from the prompt for five minutes with no editing, and then share your post with others.This week’s prompt is GRATEFUL. Here we go…
Once again, the Holy Spirit has moved in my life in ways that are perfect for me. My mind has been occupied with worries, appointments, and other busy details which leave me feeling torn down and tired. I am grateful that so many “coincidences” — God-incidences — have opened my eyes to His power in my life.
I am grateful for a book I have just reviewed, which on the surface is a mystery and love story, but which really is about rebuilding and finding hope.
I am grateful that this novel I reviewed came along at the same time I am studyng the book of Nehemah, a book which tells the story of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem — a story which has implications in my own need for rebuilding in my heart.
I am grateful that my counselor has given me — in a Christ-centered practice — tools for rebuilding peace and confidence in my mind.
****Five minutes are up! So much more I wanted to say, but it’s still in my heart. Won’t you join us with your thoughts on the word “grateful”?****
