Five Minute Friday- Lisa-Jo Baker started this in 2011. Rules write for five minutes, share, read other blogs and encourage one another. I love what she started and she is now going to entrust this writing group to Kate. She calls Kate her word sister. I love Lisa-Jo, she has done much for my writing and I am sure as the baton is passed to Kate, she will continue with the same excellence. Lisa-Jo wrote a book called Surprised by Motherhood. Her adventure as a mother, her sharing of her family encourages me to share my story and to write whether it be for five minutes or five blog posts. Kate, I hope to become a word sister to many in my blog.
Here are my five minutes.
I love acrostics and the word today is FINISH.
F-Free. I am free in Christ. Free from worry, self-doubt, incriminating thoughts. Galatians 5:1 I can stand with God and feel his freedom.
I-Image. I am made in His image. Psalm 139:14 says I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Genesis 1:27 says we were all made in the image of God.
N-Need. I love a song I learned as a child. “I need thee oh I need thee, every hour I need thee, most blessed Lord my Savior, I come to thee” The best part of needing Jesus is that He is sufficient to meet my needs. Philippians 4:19
I-Immeasurably. I know that God is able to do immeasurably more than I can imagine. Ephesians 3:20
S-Sanctified. I am sanctified in Jesus because of his truth. John 17:17
H-Hope. I have hope because of the love Jesus lavished on me. His hope purifies me. I John 3:1-4
The ultimate finish will be to hear, “Well done good and faithful servant.”
