Visit {Five Minute Friday}

Standard

fmf.VISIT

Here I go again… stepping out and doing a new thing. Another post as part of the Five Minute Friday link-up. FMF is where bloggers gather together to form a writing flash mob where we all write on a one-word prompt for 5 minutes with no editing.

The Word this week is: Visit

go…


Visit.

It’s what we do when life slows down or we slow life down.

Spending time with others is necessary.

I love early mornings, doing devotions with my husband. We visit with each other as we share what God is speaking to us before our day gets busy.

I love when my kids come to visit us.

Visiting family.

My Friday visit with my bosom friend, Donna.

Electronics has robbed us of the art of visiting. Everyone is looking at their phone, reading their Facebook page, communicating through text or email. People have forgotten how to visit.

When we visit, it’s often hard to say goodbye, but we know that we will meet up again.

There’s One who does so much more than visits me. I never have to say goodbye to Him. God inhabits (dwells) the praises of His people (Psalm 22:3). So when you praise Him, He will not just come and go as a visitor does. He will come and fill you with His presence. And He will never leave you.

Take time to visit your family and friends often.

Spend time with your Savior and enjoy His company continually.

Truth {Five Minute Friday}

Standard

 


I just decided to step out and do a new thing. This post is part of the Five Minute Friday link-up. FMF is where bloggers gather together to form a writing flash mob where we all write on a one-word prompt for 5 minutes with no editing (sorry… it’s my first time so just a little editing)!

The word is – TRUTH

go


Truth

The opposite is lies.

Don’t you just hate being lied to? It makes you feel so betrayed. It hurts even more when you are being lied about and you know that it would hurt others if you try to defend yourself. I always struggle with whether I should reveal the truth or leave things covered to protect the innocent.

Sometimes, my reputation can be on the line. But you know… most important is what God thinks.

He knows.

He sees.

Nothing is hidden from Him.

satan is the father of all lies, and he oftentimes uses people that you trust to say things about you that aren’t true.

But JESUS is the way, the TRUTH, and the Life! So I will choose to move past the lies and live in the truth. God’s Word is truth.

He will defend my life (and yours). After all, He died for me (and you).

The truth is… this is where I’ve been living these days. But I choose to dwell in His Presence!

And that’s the truth!

stop


Living in HIS Joy!
