Five Minute Friday – Beautiful
The Gypsy Mama shares this great idea to write every Friday for 5 minutes on a topic.
Want to take five minutes with me and just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
I know it’s the usual….”God makes all things beautiful, in HIS time.” Short and sweet little song you usually learn in church. But I feel my life is beautiful. The beauty has come from wreckage, from ashes, from doubt and confusion, from insecurity. But….beautiful, nonetheless. Do I always understand why or how and when things will be clear in the midst of the fog and continual “June gloom.” No, not usually, but I am learning that the fog is sometimes the best place to be. See, there is generally a beautiful scene pictured beyond the fog along with hazards in the way. If I just saw the hazards, I would not take the foggy path. But because I rely upon a heavenly Father to help me navigate through the unclear moments, I can trust that there is beauty in the midst of the trial. HE does make all things according to HIS beautiful plan. I need to see HIS perspective on a moment-by-moment basis and understand that HIS divine vision far surpasses my human vision.
Of course, lastly with these last few seconds, I also remember a the beauty I see in my daughter, who is growing according to a plan as well. Emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I am blessed to see God’s beautiful plan for her in the midst of my imperfect motherhood.
