Welcome His Faithfulness as Amazing Grace (#fmfparty)

After taking a break for the holidays, we begin again a whole new batch of Five Minute Fridays with Kate Motaung.  This is a community of writers who write for 5 minutes, no over thinking, over-editing, over-planning just a free-writing each Friday on the same word prompt and then linking-up here.  If you would like to join us, we would love to have you!

Our word prompt today:  WELCOME


Welcome 2015!

It’s a new year with new tomorrows.  Blocks of empty days waiting to be filled with adventures, new ideas and life-changing decisions.

I love to welcome a new year with hope.  It’s an adventure, this life.  And we never know what a new year will hold.

I look back on my journals from 2014… reading through my words and remembering how at the time I didn’t see how God was going to work out the situation that I was writing about but then His faithfulness comes shining through and I welcome it as the amazing grace He gives.

FMF Welcome

I’m marking up and filling in blocks of time for this new year.

A new calendar hangs on my wall and the days look open and full of promise.  Yet I also know those days can fill quickly with just the monotony of normal.

So this year I am looking to Him each day.  Placing my trust in Him and welcoming His Presence with me as we walk together into a new set of days.

    • Too funny! Yes, it is harder than you think! When I first started I thought, “this will be easy” but I actually have to think about what I’m going to say and formulate my thoughts before I even hit “go” and have my conclusion lined up in my head before I even start typing. It’s a real discipline that I’m trying to hone in so that I’m actually thinking specifically about the one thing I truly want to say. I could easily ramble for 5 minutes but I don’t think anyone would want to read it. Some of the people who have been doing this for awhile come out with some pretty amazing words in 5 minutes. It’s definitely a challenge! 🙂

      Thanks for your comment! You always put a smile on my face! And my husband always asks, “What’s so funny!” And I always say…”It’s Anthony!” Thanks for the chuckle!


  1. “Placing my trust in Him and welcoming His Presence.” Love this, Rachel! What words to live by throughout this new year. You’ve enlightened me to a profound perspective! Thank you. Love your words, as always. Happy New Year!
