It’s Friday!!! I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Many of us writing on that same word.
Today’s prompt is … Easy.
I look at the word prompt and wonder, “Easy? What’s that?”
We have often said if there was an easy way and a hard way to do something, we have always done it the hard way.
Easy —> requiring little or no effort. Not difficult. Free of discomfort or pain.
I think of Dad’s little button that, when pushed, shouts the Staples mantra,
But life is not always easy. We face unexpected twists and turns causing us to hold on, with tenacity, to the One who is always us.
I am not sure where the myth of “Easy” began as my God never promised a life full of “easy”. From the beginning, we see “hard”. The promise which we have been given is that in the midst of “hard”, we are able to have more of Him with us.
More of His strength,
And as I write these words, I am reminded of one easy He does promise ….
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you, who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30, NLT)
