Five Minute Free Writes – Every week I join a special group of writers to write for FIVE MINUTES. No editing. No revising. Just WRITE. Each week the prompt is revealed Thursday evening. You can find more information here.
This week our prompt is: Easy
Set my timer….and GO!
Easy. Wouldn’t it be nice if everything were easy? Motherhood. Being a wife. A friend. A sister and daughter……if relationships were easy, would they be as sweet?
Easy. Wouldn’t it be nice if faith were easy? Trust. Believing in the faithfulness of God when everything is fall apart? If trust and joy and love were easy, would they be as deep?
Easy. Wouldn’t it be amazing if our life was full of easy? simple. clear. straightforward and matter-of-fact. Instead, life, faith, and relationships are messy. Broken.
In the hurt and hard, God is making the broken pieces of my heart shine like pieces of glass. It is painful when the broken pieces comes apart and lay all around – shattered. It is messy and complicated, and so very hard (not easy) when the storms roll in and we are trapped between the waiting and the daily.
In all of the valleys, no matter how dark, God makes it easy. Simple: He is steadfast love and faithfulness. That’s it. He is steadfast in His love, peace, and portion. He is faithful in mercy, grace, and forgiveness. Loving God and having faith can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Truth is simple.
Truth: I am loved.
Truth: God is enough.
Truth: I have all I need for today.
