Five Minute Friday happens when we come together to each write for five minutes on a one word prompt. The prompt this week is … Steady.
The dictionary tells me that to be steady is “to be firmly places or fixed; stable in position; constant; habitual; unfaltering.”
Turning on the news each evening can leave me disappointed, disheartened, and afraid most days. Every day we can hear of violence and tragedy. Unrest. Hatred. Attacks.
These reports keep me focused and intentional as I read:
“So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever unseen.”
(1 Corinthians 15:58, NLT)
Some versions say, “Let nothing move you.”
We can stay steady, firmly fixed in our position with God. We keep on doing what we have always done.
These reports keep me in God’s Word. They keep me focused on what is true and right and good. I stay focused on the One who is steady:
“All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies, he alone is God. Amen.” (1 Timothy 1:17, NLT)
