Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Easy.

We’ve been married a long time now and have gone through many challenges together. We always say the same thing when a new situation arises …

“If there is an easy and a hard way to go through this, get ready as it sure not going to be easy!”

Easy … free of pain or difficulty; conducive to comfort; requiring no effort or labor (definitions stem from looking at

Life may not have been easy but God has surely been with us in all things. He has provided insight and understanding as it was needed.

Just thinking about the word “easy”, and looking back on God’s faithfulness, brings the gentle reminder of how to pray this morning:

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. (2 Chronicles 20:12b)

For when our eyes are on Him, and we seek Him for wisdom and understanding, He brings the insight we need to move forward.

“A scoffer seeks Wisdom in vain [for his very attitude blinds and deafens him to it], but knowledge is easy to him who [being teachable] understands.” (Proverbs 14:6, AMPC)

Life is not always easy,
but may we always remain a teachable people.
