Today is the weekly Five Minute Friday! Today’s word prompt is “unknown.”
Sometimes our future, our next step is unknown to us. Yet God has a plan for all of us. God knows us by name. We are not unknown to God!
I take great comfort in the words of Jeremiah 29:11. “Fir I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper and not harm you.”
There are days I still wonder what God is up too. But I trust in God’s promise. God knows every hair on my head. God knows where I am needed.
God says, “Tara, my beloved child, you are loved. And I promise to never leave you or forsake you.”
Today is the weekly Five Minute Friday! Today’s word prompt is “settle.”
Boxes scattered to and fro
A sense of unsettledness
The kitties confused
Wondering why their home
is in disarray.
Wondering what’s next
Where is a God calling me next?
Listening to the Holy Spirit
Wishing and praying
that God will show up
Sooner rather than later.
My soul is not settled
Waiting and yearning
Longing to be settled again.
Today is our weekly Five Minute Friday. This week’s word prompt is “last.”
When I worked at Bible camp, I learned many lessons from my campers. Jesus knew what he was saying when he said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
One week, I had a group of campers that were overly whining. We always did trivia to see who would be first to eat at meals etc. This week, my girls were always last because they’d whine and could never get the trivia question because they were too busy whining about something.
One day, my friend Nick was in charge of the trivia. I kept sharing with this group that the “first shall be last and the last shall be first.” Nick told them he’d let them go first for a meal if they could go twenty four hours without whining. He would check in with me the next day.
These girls however couldn’t go more than a few hours. So they didn’t get to go first the next day. I kept repeating the “first shall be last and the last shall be first.” I hope they learned something that week and carried this lesson with them into their adult lives.
