Weary – A Five Minute Friday Piece
By: Gramma Sue
I'm teaming up with Kate at #FMF (Five Minute Friday) where everyone practices writing together. It's really easy. Just set your timer for 5 minutes. Write on the topic of "weary" and then share your story. Read what others are writing about the one-word topic, "weary". Have fun!
Since Dani is busy signing up for horse riding lessons, I'm going to step up and play the "Five Minute Friday" game. "Weary" is a word that was on Dani's vocabulary list last week and it's a word I've known all too well.
Lisa Bevere, in Lioness Arising, said, "You are not meant to hide in the dark and hope for an escape. You are meant to be an unbeatable, unconquerable, and unshakeable daughter of Zion."
As I was reading Micah 4:9-12, I sensed God saying to our enemies, "Enough! You thought you had destroyed my children, but you haven't. Instead, you've prepared them!"
When I'm weary and depressed I follow the Light. I read God's Word and I walk outdoors and soak in God's creation. I especially love to visit our sunflowers. And soon I begin to sense God's presence and He gives me a new perspective.
I want to be unshakeable, unbeatable… so I shake off the weariness that so often settles on my shoulders and sinks into my heart. I rise up and dance. I am a daughter of Zion!
