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.”
