Welcome to October! Kate Motaung from Five Minute Friday is hosting the 31 Day Writing Challenge - 2021. I have participated in the past (see bonus links below) and didn't think I'd do it this year. However, as I prayed about it, she shared that you don't even have to post every day, but the challenge is to write for at least 5 minutes every day, even if it's just in a private journal. Wow...that felt freeing to me and I signed up and here I am.
Yes, this is the prompt from Friday, Oct. 1st and I know this is Sunday, but I'm proud of myself for showing up and writing for 3 days straight! Not sure where this time will take me and today's is more of a prayer from my journal. May you, my reader be blessed, and may Jesus' name be praised!
Need - Jesus I need You. Not just when things are hard, but ALL the time. As the hymn goes, "I need Thee every hour...", actually every minute. Some days I make such a mess of things - mostly in my mind and following through with the "what-ifs" that never happen.
I need more time - to get things done and more time to slow down and relax. It's a push and pull of the seemingly urgent and resting in the mundane. I need Your wisdom and Your patience when mine are in short supply. Oh, Jesus, I need you ALL the time because then my problems look so much smaller when illuminated in Your light and love. All I really need is You, Lord!
"I am convinced that my God will fully satisfy every need you have, for I have seen the abundant riches of glory revealed to me through Jesus Christ!" Philippians 4:19 (TPT)
This post was prompted by Kate Motaung's "Five Minute Friday," which she hosts on the Five Minute Friday website. Kate posts a single word each week and each blogger sets a timer for 5 minutes to write and then posts, with little editing. (Some weeks I have more trouble with that part than others.) Check out the other writers this week!
