5 Minute Friday
A time to write without excessive worry and editing for five minutes. A place to share the heart-words from God. A small time that allows me to stop and listen to God.
Change is not something I usually gravitate toward. All too often my life has felt as though it is on a downward trajectory. I long for peace and thank God when I sense stability. Despite my desire for calm change can be good. When things are bad, change is a move in the right direction.
Which is why I look forward to change right now. When chaos and static suffering rule the dark I long for light and a way around. This summer has had its share of difficulties. Last summer was off the charts with woe, but despite the passing of time I’ve been too busy to finish processing the losses until this year.
School has resumed. My big school year kick-off is right around the corner and I am ready for a good change.
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.
