Today’s Five Minute Friday’s writing prompt is Be.
This summer has been quite the roller coaster. Seems like every week there is news of sickness, heartache, and just bad stuff.
When I saw the writing prompt was be, I began to make a list in my mind of the things I should be. Be kind. Be compassionate. Be humble. Be prepared. I know I need to be all of these things. But, the more I thought about it the more I realized I can’t do any of these things on my own. I can only BE, when God is with me.
As the song says, “Be with me Lord, I cannot live without thee.”
“Be with me Lord, and then if dangers threaten, if storms of trial burst above my head.”
“Be with me Lord, when loneliness o’er takes me, when I must weep amid the fires of pain.”
Listen to the song and let it speak to you of God’s unfathomable love. He gives us the gift of being with us and walking through some of our darkest days. The third verse reads “… a constant sense of Thy abiding presence, Where’er I am, to feel that thou art near.”
Be With Me Lord!
Needed this today. ❤️❤️
If we are truthful we need every day. Love you and glad it spoke to you.
So thankful that He IS with us!

Be thee kind, compassionate,
be humble and prepared,
remember good is foe to great,
but baby, I’m still scared
as I write this in the dark,
swimming hard in cancer’s sea
where below there swims a shark
that would make a meal of me.
Can’t I please lay back and rest?
Haven’t I now done enough?
Do I have to be my best
when the going’s got so tough?
God answers with two “Nope”s and “Yup”,
and asks, as penance, for pushups.
Thanks for sharing. I really needed to see this.
You’re welcome! God bless.
