This week, as always, The Gypsy Mama hosts Five Minute Friday. All you need to do is write to a prompt for five minutes — no editing, tweaking, etc. — and link up. Won’t you join us?
Here’s my five minutes for this week:
The word “full” reminds me of the many times I mistakenly think I am empty. I want a full bank account, a full refrigerator, a full life. I was working on a Bible study last night, in which I was reminded that even when we do not feel the Lord’s presence, He is working in our lives at all times, every moment, even during the “gap” periods that feel empty.
I am full of the help that comes from the Holy spirit. I may not remember or always sense this, but I know it is true. The dry, empty moments are times that remind me that only God can truly fill the empty places in my life and my soul — and He does! I am filled with awe when I see a beautiful view or watch the birds feed their young. I am filled with joy when I spend a quiet evening at home with my husband or walk each morning with my mother. I am filled with God’s love for me, and the hope that comes from this love.
That’s it! Hope you’ll share a five minute write with us!
