A Good Work

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!
