I”m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. We all write on the same word.
Today’s word is …
We’ve all said it at one time or another … “I love you to the moon and back.” Somehow the distance being so great from the earth to the moon is supposed to express how greatly we love. Hearing we’re loved to the moon and back somehow seems to out our hearts to rest.
For the last few weeks, I have been watching as some are going through struggles. Some are near to me and greatly loved. Some I have never met yet their stories have impacted me deeply.
I have found myself praying for healing, for provision, for employment, for answers, for miracles.
I have had some sleepless nights, restless in bed as I have wrestled and questioned God. He has tremendous ability to remain silent, not providing answers no matter how much I have hounded Him. And so I wait. Just not as silently as He.
I have asked “Why?”, “When?”, “Will You?”, “How?” and “Where?”.
And He has remained silent except to let me know this one truth ….
“Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.”
(Psalm 36:5, NIV)
I guess you can say … He loves each one of us to the moon and back!
