Five Minute Friday: Comfort
There is something to be said for a warm cup of coffee and cozy fleece blanket and a good book! And on this freezing cold Monday after Five Minute Friday: Comfort, that is just what I could go for...
but the writing needs to be done. and sometimes there is comfort in the writing. When my thoughts are all ajumble and I can't make heads or tails of my feelings, then writing puts it out on paper, helps me sort it out.
When I'm overwhelmed with daily life and the to-do list is long and overwhelming, a 10 minute writing can clear my head. My writing so often gets done in the after, but when I make the time for it, even in the after, then truth comes out... and it blesses my heart when it encourages others.
I wrote this post last week and when I received just one comment, I knew that I had written and shared what I was supposed to. It didn't need to reach hundreds. It just needed to reach one, ... and look, it reached more than one.
And when I need the reminder that I don't have to save the world, I just need to reach the world God gave me; I take comfort in knowing that God knows who I am supposed to be reaching... my family, my friends, my blog readers, maybe you! There is comfort in doing just what God wants you to do... and it eases my worries and fears about doing it all.
I Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God ... casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Psalm 37:5 Commit thy way unto The Lord: trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
