Five Minute Friday — Glue

Here’s this week’s installment of Five Minute Friday where hundreds of us  write for five minutes on a specific prompt word. The initiative was started by Lisa-Jo Baker (http://lisajobaker.com/2014/04/five-minute-friday-glue/) who thought 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 GLUE. The timer is set and the clock starts NOW.

Don’t you wish there was some kind of human glue to put ourselves back together again after a fall. We all fall. We all are broken. We all have little chips in our armor. Many of us are more shattered.

Well, we do have “glue.” He came from heaven — a gift from our Father — lived among us and died — traditionally on this very day, bruised, battered, bloodied and broken. But He put Himself back together and walked out of his cave/tomb to give us a similar metamorphosis. All we have to do is ask … and listen. All we have to do read what He did for us. All we have to do is trust and believe.

Jesus is the answer, not only during this Good Friday but always. We may not like the answers, but they are there for us nonetheless. We just have to apply them and our brokenness will be healed. The shattered pieces will be made whole. The chinks in the armor will be smoothed out… STOP

… Look for the glue in Jesus this Easter season.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: God knows you. He wants to relate to you as just you. He knows what’s in your bank account, what’s in your heart, what’s in your closet, what’s in your future, what’s in your deepest feelings. He wants to speak to you. He wants to love you.

  1. You are so right, many of us are more shattered than even broken. And thank God that even in those million little pieces we are, He can still put up back together and HOLD us together. Such amazing grace! Thanks for visiting my blog and glad to find yours. 🙂 Blessings, Meredith

    What a beautiful testimony to the power of the resurrected Jesus! The glue that heals our brokenness.

  3. I love how every post I have read so far mentions that Jesus/God is the glue that keeps us together! We are so blessed even when life hurts and more cracks and breaks come along.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
