Five Minute Friday … Again

Here’s this week’s installment of Five Minute Friday. You might remember the task is to write for five minutes on a specific prompt word. The initiative was started by Lisa-Jo Baker ( who thought about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And she figured, why not take five minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing.

So, the timer is set for five. The word for the week this week is AGAIN… so here goes. {clock starts now}

Woke up the morning and decided to sneak in another five minutes under the covers … again. Rushed through my “God” time … again. Went downstairs to hear the kids fighting … again. Had to step over toys on my way out … again. Got into work and was hit with a dozen problems before I got my coat off … again. Had to figure out how to juggle outlay against income … again. Went home and found my wife grumpy … again. Just crashed in my chair, feeling down on myself … again. Just before climbing into bed I took a minute to pray. “Lord, I had such a rotten day … again.” He interrupted me. “So did I, son … again. I kept trying to get your attention … again. But, you didn’t seek my advice or ask for My help … Again.”


Wow, how was that for timing?

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: A true healer doesn’t mind inconvenience or taking risks in the course of reaching out to those who truly need a hand up.

    This is so true. Why is it so hard for us to remember this? I pray we all take the time to go to Him first, in all things.

    Bless you!
