It’s Friday again! Every week, I join a special group of writers to write for FIVE MINUTES on a one-word prompt. No editing. No revising. Just WRITE. This week, the word is PATH! Go!
Path. What a week to be writing about this word.
I’ve actually been contemplating this word all week. Not in the sense of “where will this path lead me?” but in wondering “where might I be today if Jesus hadn’t rescued me?” Yes, it’s a rhetorical question, but it’s a good question to ask it sometimes.
Where might I be today? Maybe divorced, maybe childless, maybe depressed, maybe dead.
Last weekend, I finally wrote about my 25-year battle with Tendonitis and I have been surprised at the emotional fall-out from getting it down on paper. Thoughts and feelings that have long been dormant have suddenly come surging to the surface. Grief, anger, sadness, relief, gratefulness. All of them and more.
And I’ve realized afresh that God REALLY does know what He’s doing with us. He knows the final destination, and He really can get us there.
Like I wrote in my story,
“When the enemy blinds you with bad news, God sees the promise! I could only see the reality of not being able to play piano again, but He saw a future filled with love, melodies, and joy. The detour was sooo much better than my original plan!”
So today, on this Five Minute Friday, my heart is full of worship at how Father has rescued and restored and resurrected me. He has led me down the perfect path.
