Today I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. All of us writing on that same word.

Today’s prompt is …. News.

News = “a report of a recent event; intelligence; information” (

Lately the news has been followed than ever as I pursue news of the latest which is going on in this election year. Much of what I hear each day saddens and perplexes me. And I am not going to write a post on politics. Not my intent at all.

The prompt brought this question to mind: What are we to do when we fear bad news?

Our only response must be, “We stand steadfast because our God remains unmovable and on His throne always.”

“They {{the godly}} do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.” (Psalm 112:7, NLT)

Those who are God-fearing and trusting in the protection and provision of our God will not fear bad news. They will remain stable and steady, in spite of the news. They remain rooted in the truth of the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Those placing their hope in God remain confident and fearless, trusting God to protect them and make provision for them – no matter the news.


May we not allow the daily news to dictate our lives.
May we remain steadfast, trusting The Good News of Jesus.
