He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

Five Minute Friday – A Heavenward View





Dear one, this is my prayer for you in your affliction
While you undergo trials and tribulation

Faith will rise

Hope will not be extinguished
        But the Spirit will fan the flames
                From the embers, your hope in the Lord will burn hot

Trust in the Lord will increase

Unquenchable will be your desire for God’s Word

Praise and thanksgiving will flow from your lips

Peace of God will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus

Joy will fill your soul

You will pray without ceasing,
Confident that God hears your cries
He sees your affliction and He cares

Your face will reflect the glory of the Lord
        Time spent with Him

Remember…you are a son or daughter of the King of kings
        And Lord of lords

Your focus will be heavenward, not inward

Confident that your deliverance will come from the Lord

Certain that the Lord is walking with you in your trial
        He is well able to bring you through this tribulation

The Lord is in the fire with you
        Refining your faith as pure gold

May you not loose heart or hope or faith
        May your trust in the Lord never waver




It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.
