It’s Friday, friends! We made it!
To celebrate, let’s play Five Minute Friday! Lisa-Jo provides the prompt and we write our hearts out for just five minutes, without worrying about making things perfect.
Today’s prompt is BEYOND.
– GO –
Beyond the mess on my floors and the mess in my heart, there is a Savior calling, urging me to see life with His eyes.
Beyond diapers and nap time and temper tantrums lies a beautiful little girl who’s coming into her own, a daughter of the King and future woman of God.
Beyond kindergarten worries and childhood nightmares and intentionally fraying my very. last. nerve. hides a warrior in training, a future daddy and bold leader emerging.
Beyond preteen drama, orthodontia and peer pressure, this almost-adult is learning, growing, becoming a bright light in a dark world and spreading joy to those who lack.
This too-plain, too-cluttered home is a haven for hearts who will always remember this place as their launching pad and safe haven from the worries of life, their home until they one day see Home.
– STOP –
Today, I’m striving to see with Christ’s eyes –
beyond my current mess — to glimpse the future
and the plan He has for my family.
How do you stay focused to view life through Christ’s eyes?
