Welcome to this week’s edition of the Five Minute Friday link-up! Whether you have your own website, post on Instagram, or scribble using freehand in a worn out journal, you are welcome here! 🙂 The goal is to write. That’s it. No judgment, no overthinking, no editing . . . just write.
This week’s FMF writing prompt is: SPRING
Setting my timer for five minutes, and . . . GO.
I decided last year that spring is my favorite time of the year. Maybe it was the long winter cooped up inside because of the pandemic. I’m not sure what caused it, but I suddenly saw spring with a brand new sense of wonder.
I am utterly fascinated by perennial flowers and plants that burst through the soil after a dormant winter underground. It’s a wonder to me that God was at work during those bleak months, doing hidden work in darkness. Seeing the green shoots spring forth at this time of the year gives me hope that He is working in the dark, hidden places of my soul as well.
Even in the seemingly dormant seasons, God never ceases to accomplish His purposes. If you’re going through a dry spell, don’t be discouraged. The Lord has not abandoned you. He is still doing exactly what He planned to do in you since before the beginning of time, and He will be faithful to complete it — even if you can see any evidence today.
Remember: Plants and trees do not bear fruit or blossom year round. To everything there is a season. We can plant seeds and water, but ultimately it’s the Lord who causes growth and brings forth fruit.
