Tonight I again join the Five Minute Friday #fmfparty group of writing for five minutes on a one-word prompt. Truly, I enjoy Thursday nights with this group of amazing people. Even on my phone, on they way home from a chilly and wet soccer game. Oh the memories in that!
Won’t you join us? You don’t need to be concerned about grammar or punctuation or anything like that. Just writing. Free, pure, beautiful. We share and encourage at Kate Motaung’s. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to use the comment section below to write your five minutes. I’d love for you to join the fun!
This week’s word:
I’m up to my eyeballs in work this week.
I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a week like this. Ever. A huge deadline looms in the distance. A larger-than-life project consumes my days. I’m doing all I can to stay focused, and to keep away distractions.
This is something I can’t do on my own. So I’ve asked for help.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains–
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
I’m praying for God to equip me. To guide me. To give me wisdom and words. To stretch my time. To keep a good and hopeful attitude. And to glorify Him.
And it blesses me to know others are praying for me.
In times of deadlines, and projects, and stressful situations, and larger-than-life responsibilities, there’s relief in knowing God is with us. There’s relief in knowing we aren’t alone. There’s relief in being the beneficiary of the intercessions of others.
There’s also relief in knowing the deadline is near, and soon it’ll all be behind me!
Oh, what a glorious day that’ll be next week!
But until then, I’m working and appreciating the relief from the One who generously provides it when we call out for help. May we each be reminded of this glorious relief!
God is with you today, my friend. There’s such relief in that truth!
