I’m coming in a bit late, since we worked late the night of the #FMFParty. I had a long weekend that began on Thursday and I admit to feeling sluggish about my blogging time. So this is a kick in the rear for me. If you’d like to know more about this 5 minute writing prompt, go here.
Lisa-Jo’s prompt for the week is “Wide”.
While I’m not one to write about things in which to fear (because I’d rather uplift us to walk by faith), there certainly are things in this Kingdom life that we need to be cautious of.
Wide is the way of destruction.
While people might describe this differently and apply it towards a variety of ‘worldly’ things, I want to direct your attention to the most destructive thing that seeks to hinder my faith the most, worry. When I worry, I’m not walking by faith. To take the steps of faith is the narrow way. It’s the wide path that takes us from faith; the wide path of worry.
God takes care of the birds of the air and provides them with food and shelter. Worry is what causes us to fall from faith…not fall from our eternity in Christ, just ffrom our everyday life of faith.
All things work together for good to those who love God.
You see, destruction can come in many forms and yet not remove us from faith. A car can rear end ours, a storm can flood our homes, and a burglar can rob us at knife point; yet none of these things were a path we CHOSE.
But worry… we choose worry. It’s a wide path that many travel and it leads to destruction…it destroys our peace and joy.
Faith…the narrow way..this is where we rest in peace and enjoy the abundance of life..even in the midst of uncertain times.
Five minutes to think.. ‘wide’. It’s by faith that our narrow path becomes wide, and full of precious promises being fulfilled.
