5 minute friday ~ Wonder

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!

Sorry. I will not be turning off the comment verification. When I do I get scam... I hate it!

OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:::


I wonder what next year will be like. The last year has been very hard. When my husband got unemployed almost 3 years ago I did not expect that 31 months later he would still be unemployed. I wonder what God has in store for us in 2013. I don't really want to know. I just wonder. Knowing may frighten me more than not knowing does now.

I wonder what the future will hold, not just 2013 but longer than that. I wonder when the Lord will come back and take his bride home with him. I wonder how much longer the world can last. Things are crazy... and all seems ready for his return. I must just go on and trust him for today. I cannot think to far ahead right now. There is just enough light for the path in front of me. A light unto my path. A lamp, like they used in Bible times does not shed light very far.
We have been reading by candlelight on Sunday nights. A new tradition. The light is not very bright and certain candles are better for reading with than others. The light of the Word of God is enough to guide my steps today. It does give me a peek into the future. I do know how the story ends... but the middle part, between now and then... that I don't know. But I do know The One who knows my future and it is Him I must trust. I must trust my Lord and Savior, to guide me and to guide my husband as he leads our family.
Time is up!

What a beautiful post. Five years ago our second son was born with a heart defect. The whole pregnancy I wondered about the future. "Knowing may frighten me more than not knowing does now." That's perfect. It turned out our little boy did not survive his heart surgery when he was two months old. Had I known that before hand, could I ever have done all the things I needed to? I don't know. you are right about God just lighting our paths a tiny bit. And I'm starting to believe it's an act of grace of his that he does!

Visiting you back from 5 minute friday!

Hi Debbie
I am soooo.... encouraged by your courage and childlike faith in our Lord. Yes, this world is not our home and we all long for His return. I love the light analogy. It speaks volumes. Thanks for this thoughtful post!
Blessings and best wishes for Xmas
