Five Minute Friday: KEEP
It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with Kate Motaung. Each week we are given a one word prompt. We have five minutes flat to write. Our word for today is KEEP.
I hear the words 'let it go' every day. I teach preschool children and so it's not unusual to hear little girls spontaneously start to sing the familiar song from the Frozen movie.
I hear the words 'let go and let God'. These are words of faith. But how often do doubts and worry replace trust? In a world that can be turned upside down, it can be all too easy to cling to our things and people in our attempt to keep them close.
How thankful I am for the words of assurance from my Bible. The verse from Isaiah 26:3 is one that I often quote when my mind is tempted to gravitate towards worry.
As I learn to trust my God, the Holy Spirit so often provides me with a peace beyond understanding. I cling to this Scripture. I am reminded that nothing in this world will last forever. I cannot keep it. But as I let go and trust God, I have His peace.
Blessings and love,
