Are you ready to believe that every one of My promises is truth?
Are you ready to believe I’ll do what I’ve said I will?
That’s what the word “ready” prompts in me.
A challenge to believe. Really believe in the faith I proclaim.
A whisper to stand in faith – be brave and be ready to believe.
To cast aside doubt – in myself and more so in God.
Are you ready to believe that I won’t leave or forsake you?
Are you ready to believe I can do exceedingly, abundantly more?
Are you ready to believe that I am indeed Sovereign, My plans are better, My ways are Higher.
Will you believe what you say you do? Will you stand bold and unwavering?
Or will you give in to the lies that say you’re not enough, you can’t, you never will.
Are you ready to throw up your white flag and surrender to My plan instead of yours?
Be ready, He says. Once you surrender all, there is no telling where We will go.
This is my first post written as part of Five Minute Friday – a five minute free write challenge prompted by a single word. Today’s word is: ready. Learn more at katemotaung.com.
This was the most freeing and most stressful five minutes EVER. Five minutes to write, then stop dead, brought a funny kind of freedom. Of course, my five minutes was plagued by a low battery warning on the laptop, my husband calling, and the Sparklett’s delivery guy showing up at the door. So while I promise I only wrote for five minutes, I hit the pause button on the timer more than five times – yup, that’s how I roll. And…let’s be real – if the enemy thinks we can speak truth in five minutes – you know there was a whole frenzy of attacks set ablaze this morning!
Also – a special shout out to Abby at fearfullymademom.net for inspiring the quest to find out what this five minute thing was all about!
