Happy Friday. Yes, it’s Five Minute Friday time!
You know the drill. We receive a prompt, ponder it and let our fingers translate the words in our minds and hearts. Then we meet at Kate Motaung’s place (in the Community section at www.fiveminutefriday.com) to link up and share our work with others in the group. There are few “rules” but the most important rule is you visit the blog of the person who linked up before you and leave some encouragement. That’s the most fun of all, and the heart of this community.
Here’s another take from Five Minute Friday: A Collection of Stories Written in Five Minutes Flat, just to whet your appetite and hopefully gently coax you to join. “Community has been a breath of fresh air in busy weeks.”
This week’s prompt is TOUCH. The timer is set, so let’s GO …
My first immediate thought was the song Touch of the Master’s Hand.
Man, do we all need that!
We are so battered and scarred with sin. Every day we add to the dust. We loosen our strings.
We need the Master’s touch to restore us, to give us an opportunity to share His sweet music and message with others, to affirm our worth in our own eyes. The Master already knows it. We’re the one with the nagging self-doubt and lagging self-worth.
If we allow it, the Master will come, wipe away the dust and tighten the strings, and
May we allow the Master to enter into our lives today and every day to tweak us, to cleanse us and, most of us, to transform us from an old, battered violin into a Lordly instrument to share His melody with all we touch.
That’s the direction this … STOP
… weeks’ prompt led me. That’s the prayer I sing.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: We do not have to know what God is going to do; simply knowing He is with us is more than enough.
