Welcome to the weekly Five Minute Friday blog link-up, where we freewrite for five minutes flat on a one-word writing prompt.

If you’re new, a special welcome to you! Click here to learn more about how the link-up works.

This week’s FMF writing prompt is: HOW

 

how

 

GO.

A longtime FMF community member suggested the prompt, HOW, for this week, and I thought, “Yes. That’s appropriate.” So many “How?” questions have been flowing through my mind and across the screen as I read news articles and social media sites.

But when I pause to think about the most prominent “Hows” right now, the answers are all the same for those who trust in Christ. At the risk of sounding trite or oversimplifying, our answers and hope are always found in Christ, by His grace, and with God’s help.

How will we transition back to “normal” life after staying at home with businesses shut down for so long?

In Christ, by His grace, and with God’s help. 

How will we overcome the economic strain that has taken place as a result of COVID-19?

In Christ, by His grace, and with God’s help. 

How will we recover from the depth of personal and collective grief we have experienced in recent weeks and months?

In Christ, by His grace, and with God’s help. 

How will America ever heal from the pain and sin of pervasive racism?

In Christ, by His grace, and with God’s help. 

The list of questions goes on. Yes, there are hard days ahead. Yes, it will require significant emotional, spiritual, and physical work. But whenever we feel hopeless, whenever we think there is no way forward, whenever the solution seems impossible, we can remember that “with God, all things are possible” — in Christ, by His grace, and with God’s help.
