Five Minute Friday — Mighty

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.

This week’s prompt is MIGHTY.

I started thinking about the wonders of a mighty God as I drove to New Jersey today. The day was dreary, matching the mood of the visit, my uncle’s memorial service Saturday.

But as I drove through the hills and valleys, through the tiny towns and spansive landscape, I was awed by the way it all developed.

I’ve probably driven the route a hundred times before over the past 20 years, in winter’s white, summer’s lush green and autumn’s glorious color palate. The landscape took on different hues each time, but its the mountains and streams caught my attention today as they began a metamorphosis from winter quiet to spring activity.

I know many of my non-believing friends will say it’s just nature. The mountains and streams developed over eons. And they’re right.

But somewhere, at some time, there was a beginning and that is why I can say with confidence my God is a mighty God! … STOP

Wow, that doesn’t happen often. The beeps started just as I hit the exclamation point.

Well, that’s what popped into this mind this week.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Everything will work out in the end. If it’s not working out, it’s not the end.

    Yep, I totally loved this today. If it has not worked out, it is not the end. I have learned that often when I think it is over, it is only a new beginning. Painful, but endurable. Thank you for sharing.
