So it’s called “Five Minute Friday.” Over at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog, she gives a one word prompt. Then we writers are to set our timers for five minutes and write with gusto! No spelling or grammar worries, just pure, raw, lovely thoughts put onto a computer screen. If you like that kind of challenge, then go get your timer and link up!
The Lord is good. And He is worthy of all of our praise. And there really are times when I don’t “get” Him. I know that’s scriptural and all. His ways are not my ways, etc. But I wonder where God’s mercy is at times.
I look around me and see suffering. Worldwide, stateside, in my church, next door.
Where is God’s mercy? There are some people who have trial after trial after trial. And I wonder where God’s mercy is. They sure need some.
But perhaps the mercy is there, and it’s stronger, because the storm is raging. It’s the storm that teaches us perseverance, trust, reliance.
And it’s when we are calling out to the God who hears that the mercy falls upon us like rain.
Thanks for joining me today! Have a fantastic weekend!
