Everybody know what time it is?
(If your first instinct was to say “TOOL TIME” that’s fine, but you would be incorrect. )
It’s time for Five Minute Friday.
In short: Each Friday, I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker. She gives us a prompt. Then we write. For five minutes flat, no over thinking, no editing.
Todays prompt: JOIN
I keep my eyes locked, with focus few have witnessed. My fingers shake, as I try to get the tiny drop of super glue right…where…I…need…
Suddenly, I flinch. The glue misses the target by a hair, and plops on my thumb. My first instinct? Rub it off.
Usually with another finger.
Sigh. Now my fingers are instantly stuck together. I panic and pull them apart. OW!! I know that for the next day or so, I am going to have the crusty remnants of super glue stuck on my fingers. (And the drop that landed on my pants? Yeah, gonna be there forever.)
It amazes me that sometimes when we try to join something together, we miss completely and end up making a big ol’ mess.
But when God calls us to join with Him, it’s never a mistake.
We have the blessing, privilege, opportunity, whatever you want to call it, to walk with God EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. We can join together… from here to eternity.
And should we ever try to pull away from Him? Yeah, it’s gonna be more painful that trying to remove our super-glued fingers from each other.
God’s path for us, while not always understandable or clear to us, always takes us to the perfect target. The one He has planned for us.
So let’s join up with Jesus today, utilize our “spiritual superglue” and forever stick with Him.
Because sometimes… Being stuck is a good thing.
That concludes another word-flowing, adrenaline filled Five Minute Friday. What did you think my friends? Are stuck on Jesus today? How do you stay close with Him? I always love the comments. Leave one below. Holla!
Have a wonderful weekend– may it be blessed!
