Five-Minute-Friday-4-300x300I’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 the word prompt is … Keep.

We all have things which we like to keep. We keep them in a special place. A place which is special and will provide protection.

In those times which unsettle me causing me to feel vulnerable, I find myself grateful for His promise:

“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.” (Isaiah 26:3, NIV)

He alone provides for me a place of protection, of safety – He keeps me in a given and special place – in the palm of His hand.

It is there He keeps me with a sense of well being, assurance all will turn out for my good.

He keeps my mind steadfast, framing the situation with His truth.

He keeps me as I trust Him. Trust meaning I attach myself to Him relying on Him to keep me secure.

It’s a funny thing this word “keep” ….

He keeps me in perfect peace.

As I keep my mind on Him.

He keeps one thing. I keep another.

And peace is sure to come!

 

Today I am joining … Five Minute Friday and Fellowship Friday and Everyday Jesus and Faith Filled Friday and Blessing Counters and Dance With Jesus .
