This week’s Five Minute Friday writing prompt is: MIDDLE
Setting my timer for five minutes, and . . . GO.
I have a bad habit (well, many, actually). One of my bad habits is that I too often look to the past or the future, at the expense of the present. I’m either reminiscing about days gone by — scrolling through digital photo albums and telling stories that begin with “remember when” — or I’m looking at the calendar and making lists in preparation of whatever is coming next.
I look for God’s hand in past trials and victories and pray for His hand in the future, but how often do I consciously rest in His hand today? In this moment? Right now?
Sometimes it’s harder to sense His presence in the moment. In the here and now. When the future is still murky and it’s tricky to trust. When we’re still in the messy middle, before the light at the end of the tunnel can be seen.
But that’s when we need Him most. When we’re desperate for His sufficient grace. When we’re hopeless without His sustaining power and divine intervention.
He is God of yesterday, tomorrow, and today. Even if we can’t see it.
His mercies never fail. And His grace is sufficient.
