On Fridays I have been joining the Five Minute Friday community. We write for five minutes on a prompt given by Kate Motaung. Sometimes my thoughts continue a little beyond the five minutes–marked by //. To visit this inspiring community of writers, click here. Today’s prompt is: WORK
Over the years I have held many different jobs. I worked my way through college. As a nurse I have worked in a number of different hospitals and nursing units. I have worked at home as a mom.
As I look back I can see my imperfections—things that I could have done better. I see the times that I needed to say that I was sorry.
But I can also see the ways that God has guided me. I see the prayers that were faithfully answered. I remember the times that I stood outside of my children’s bedrooms, praying for God to be at work, despite my human failings. God answered those prayers.
The words in the Bible are true. //
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
This is great encouragement for believers in Jesus. As we journey through life, we are being refined by the work of God!
So true – that verse is a real encouragement to all us – whatever work we are given to do each day!
The Bible has so much encouragement for us!
It is encouraging to remember that, as we work, God is working in us and that he will bring that work to completion one day. Visiting from FMF #35.
Lesley, thanks for visiting. Have a good week!
