Five Minute Friday – Truth Be Told



 
LORD, the truth be told,
          I’ve been struggling
                   with fear and doubt

Try as I might
          I can’t control the future
                   or guess what will happen tomorrow

In my fear
          I’ve gotten my eyes off of You LORD
Forgotten
that You are able
          that You have a good and perfect plan
                   which You are working out in my life

I’ve lost sight of the fact
          that You walk with me always
both in the peaks and valleys of my life
You use all circumstances
          To help me grow and change
You expose my sin
          So that I will confess and repent
You buff out that which is displeasing to You
and reveal conduct unbecoming a Christian

Help me walk by faith
          May I not doubt Your goodness
                   or Your ability to accomplish what concerns me today

May I remember that with each step I take
          You are with me
You alone know what my future holds
          You are perfectly able to direct my path

Help me to keep my eyes on You Lord
          Not my circumstances
                   Not the people that surround me

Help me to trust You
          Tenaciously
                   Unswervingly
                             to the end


It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s FiveMinute 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.

Hi Susan! I can really relate to the fear you express. I do tend to fuss about the future, and look to mistakes in the past. I suppose it reflects my lack of trust.

I pray that I will be able to trust more, and see the truth that he has me covered. And he'll never leave me.

Have a blessed day!

I'm a planner. I even plan buffer time so my daily organization doesn't get blowm up. However, I am learning - to throw up my hands and just give it all to HIm - and there is liberation in that. But like Dr Manette in A Tale of Two Cities - I need time to learn how to handle this liberation.

Thank you for your prayer - it was a beautiful way to start my day!
