Five minutes to write: Friend
Write–don’t edit–just 5 minutes to be in the moment–
My cheeks feel sticky and stiff from recent morning tears. My spirit feels crushed by a piece of paper that puts my failure front and center.
And then I come to 5 Minute Fridays, & see the word. Friend.
I am one who always has some sort of song running through my brain. God uses song so often to whisper His words of truth, especially the ones I need to hear on repeat.
“What A Friend We Have In Jesus” An old hymn that I have not heard in years pops into my brain as I read the word– Friend.
And now it is on repeat in my brain. And it will be all day. Because that is the type of Friend He is.
“All our sins and griefs to bear”
He is a perfect friend who knows it all, gets it all, sees it all & holds it all together for our good. He will bear my grief.
I want to unload this needless shame, even as one consistently shames me. I want peace.
I will carry it to my Friend, in prayer.
