{{Today is Friday!!!  It is the day I link with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Here is how it works…. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. We all write on the same word.}}

Today the word is …. mighty.

As soon as I saw the word prompt, the theme song began going through my head. I could see the image of one of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid …. Mighty Mouse. The thing with him was that whenever he was on his way to save, the song played. He sang as he flew. The words became ingrained (who knew until today?) …

We’re not worrying at all
We’re just listening for his call
“Here I come to save the day!”
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

My kids are going to cringe when they see this. But here’s the thing…..

We all need someone who is mighty to save on those days ….

  • when the bills pile high and the money pile is down
  • when the heat is cranking and the oil prices are high
  • when your heart is breaking and you have no idea how you will recover
  • when THE diagnosis comes in and it starts with a big “C”
  • when the task before us is daunting or flat out, impossible
  • when you’re unemployed, AGAIN
  • when your spouse walks out

We all face days at some point which cause us to realize we need someone who is mighty because we are not. This morning I realized, I know this verse well, probably too well. Most times when I share it or quote it or read it, I concentrate on God delighting and singing and rejoicing over me. I do not think that will ever occur again as today I read it differently:

The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.
(Zephaniah 3:17, NIV)

I am grateful for the cartoon character today, who immediately came to mind, theme song and all 🙂

No matter what we are facing today or in the days ahead, may we not worry at all. May we listen for His call and to His Word. May we remember and hold onto this truth ….

He is mighty to save.
