It’s Five Minute Friday! It’s where we free write for five minutes on a one-word prompt. Without concern for punctuation, grammar, etc. It’s just writing at its purest, and I love it. We gather together at Kate Motaung’s to share what we’ve written. I continually find it amazing what can transpire in just five minutes!
Join the fun! Feel free to add your five minutes of writing at Kate’s or in the comments section below.
This week’s word:
Sometimes it’s just feels good to be noticed.
At this, she bowed down with her face to the ground. She asked him, “Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you notice me—a foreigner?” Ruth 2:10
Who do you and I notice?
Do our eyes tend to see the rich, the famous, the ones with influence?
Do we see those who may feel like they don’t fit in?
Do we pay attention to the needs of others?
Are we more concerned about things rather than people?
Or do we notice a foreigner, like Boaz did in the book of Ruth? I invite you to read this story in Ruth 2. It’s fascinating.
There are those all around us who desire to be noticed. Who desire to be shown appreciation, love, concern. They desire to matter to something or someone.
Maybe that’s you today. I must have been me last night. My online friend, Kate, tweeted at me when I was calling it a day,
“You are noticed. :)”
Who can you notice today? Who might need a smile? A kind word? A friendly voice?
Who in our lives need to be noticed?
My prayer is that God will show us, and that we will act.
And friend, just in case that person is you today, you are noticed here. And you matter. I appreciate you more than you know. May God bless you with His love and presence.
Thanks for spending a few minutes with me here. You bless me, and you are noticed.
