Where many of us write for five minutes on a one-word prompt without concern of grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. It’s such a freeing thing to do, and I look forward to it each week. We gather together at Kate’s place to share our writing and encourage one another. I invite you to join us, either on your blog or in the comments below.
This week’s word:
The timing wasn’t great.
I didn’t plan on having a migraine tonight.
But, I guess migraines aren’t something we usually plan on, right??
I knew it would be arriving quickly when I could no longer see my computer screen. The fuzzy lines that always come first blocked my vision. I had to back off from our #fmfparty on Twitter for a time, because who knew what I’d be typing without the ability to see!
I’m just thankful I was able to take my medicine right away to minimize the effects. My sight returned within a matter of minutes.
But, isn’t that they way life goes?
Things happen in our lives that aren’t in our plans.
–The car breaks down.
–The water heater quit working.
–It snowed 20 inches.
–The difficult news we received from the doctor.
–Sickness. Death. Disappointment.
–Losing our job. Losing our car keys. Losing our way.
But, even when it does, and even when things transpire that weren’t in our plans, we can still trust the One Who’s plans are perfect.
It gives me great comfort to remember in such times that nothing doesn’t happen that isn’t sifted through God’s hands first.
We may not always understand why things happen as they do. But God does. He knows it all. And it’s okay to just rest in that truth, and trust He knows what He’s doing.
Even with a migraine.
Whatever you may be going through today that wasn’t a part of your plan, continue to trust the One Who loves you, Who won’t abandon you, and Whose plans for you are bigger than what we can see now.
I’m praying for you, friend.
