Well, it’s been quite a week, hasn’t it?
I hope the weekly routine and habit of these five-minute freewrites will offer you a sense of normalcy and rhythm.
This week’s FMF writing prompt is: AHEAD
As I type this, the official results of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election have not yet been determined. To say it’s been a week (ahem, year) of uncertainty would be an understatement. I’ve heard from several friends who have expressed feelings of tension, stress, and general unsettledness over a variety of circumstances.
The reality is, no matter what the outcome will be, we have no idea what lies ahead. People may speculate what will happen, but the truth is we have no idea what the future holds. No idea, except, of course, what the Scriptures promise: that God is still in control, that He is still on the throne, and that He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We know that no matter what, He will not leave us nor forsake us. He will continue to turn the hearts of rulers and kings like a watercourse. He will continue to uphold and sustain the universe. He will one day wipe every tear from our eyes.
We don’t know what lies ahead, and yet we need not fear because we serve a God of love, of compassion, of patience, of kindness, of mercy, of justice, and of grace.
His promises will never fail. His love endures forever.
America is not the center of the universe. Jesus Christ is the one who “is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17).
So do not fear, dear ones. He is coming soon.
