TGIF! You know what time it is, right?! It’s time for Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker!
The idea is to write for five whole minutes on the prompt word given. You are to write your little heart out without worrying about how it is coming across. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it does have to be your words straight from your heart. Deal?
Do you realize that nothing is too small for God? There isn’t any part of you that is too small to take your worries and cares to Him. He loves you no matter if you’re asking Him to move the biggest mountain in your life or the smallest thorn in your side. He cares about it all. He wants you to take it to Him in prayer. All of it, friends. Every single thing that you think is so minute, so small, so unimportant … it is ALL important to God. And you know what else? He knew it, all of it, before you ever decided to release it by taking it to Him in prayer. He saw it, He felt it, He knew the thoughts swirling around in your head. He knew the pain you felt the moment that you felt it. He knew the sting of the words spoken that hurt you and cut to your very core. He knew. He was there. He heard. He felt the sting, and He cried with you over it. He wants to scoop you up into His strong and wonderful arms of love and just hold you, cradle you and love on you, wiping every single tear that you’ve cried gently away. He wants you to come to Him like a child and just pour it out to Him. He cares. He longs to hear from you, dear one. Oh you thrill His heart completely when you bring all of your cares, no matter how big or small, before His throne. He wants to talk to you. He wants to have a relationship with you. He wants to be your best friend. All you have to do is turn to Him. The big, the small, the petty, the gigantic. He wants to hear about it all. Come to Him, release this burden, confide in Him, and watch Him melt all of your cares away simply because He is God.
