I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word.
Today’s word is ….
I want to get married because ….
I want to take that trip because …
It would be so good to sit in a tub of hot water because …
It is your fault because ….
But there have been days when circumstances happen, life unravels, and there is no because. We don’t know the reason or the cause. Nothing makes much sense. Or adds up. Life just happens.
So we keep praying. Keep hoping. Keep reading Scriptures in the hopes of finding the because. The reason for it all.
And it falls into place, ever so slightly at first. The holy because …
But I will trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me.
(Psalm 13: 5-6, NLT)
The holy because. Because He rescues us from ourselves. From others. From disappointments. From hurts.
The holy because. Because He is good to us.
Because we trusted the Lord, He fills us with joy.
The holy because.
