Five Minute Friday – Write & Remember




When the winds of change blow…
It seems as if there is no area of my life that’s untouched.

It’s then I feel compelled to meditate, remember and write about Who You are O Lord.

You are my Heavenly Father enthroned above
You know the end from the beginning

You had and outrageous plan set in place
Before the foundations of the world were laid.

You alone are Faithful
You are the Covenant Maker and Promise Keeper

You are the Priceless, Matchless Son of God
The One who is Mighty to Save

You are Holy, Holy, Holy
The Sinless Son of God

You are the Obedient Son of God
Who bore my sins so that I could be saved

You are the Way, the Truth and the Life
No one comes unto the Father, except by You

You are a God of Love
You are a God of Wrath

You alone are Righteous
Your motives are always pure and undefiled

You are a God who
        Saves
                Redeems
                        Restores
                                Forgives

You are a God of
        Hope
                Joy
                        Peace
                                Patience
                                        Love
                                                Grace
                                                        Mercy
                                                                Justice

You are my God, my Ever Present Help in times of trouble.  You alone are unchanging. 

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.

Beware…



“Beware of the Bareness of Busyness”

When I heard that quote, my ears perked up…that’s it!  That describes my life the last few months.  It’s getting busier and busier and I feel emptier and emptier. 

I’m busy at work, I’m busy at home…and there is very little downtime.  The pace is too much!  There’s no let up.

I spend time in Word of God in the morning and at night.  I pray.  When I go to lunch or on my drive home, I listen to Bible studies or worship music…but there’s something still missing.

My life feels lifeless. 

I think it’s because during my day, I’m not taking the time to listen to that still small voice.  I'm not hearing God’s gentle whisper or even His shouting to get my attention.  My attention is elsewhere.

I don’t take the time to write it down and think about it.  To see where it applies to my life.  I'm not taking time to enjoy the gifts that God has given me.  Nor taking the time to say thank You.

When people aren’t listening to me…I stop talking to them.  I don’t want to waste my time.

Does God ever feel like that? 

Perhaps God’s silence, His deafening silence, is finally getting my attention.  Oh Lord…help me to hear You, to really listen and obey.
