Joining again with the #fiveminutefriday group of writers, where we write for 5 minutes on a one word prompt.  Today’s word is: Back.

Last Sunday Evening we had our ‘Back to School With God’ Event, an event created by Scripture Union in the UK, to dedicate our schools, teachers & young people to God as they go back to school, college, & university.

So that made me think, what else are we going back to?  Back to autumn, back to dark nights, back to turning the clock back, back to winter activities.

How do we respond with these seasonal changes?  It doesn’t have to mean going back to old ways, old habits or old self-defeating behaviours.  It can actually mean going forward.  Going forward to new things, going forward in our walk with God, going forward into new events and situations in life.

It could be a new time of re-dedication, of new direction, of new purpose, a time to go back to God, even a time to go back to church!

Whatever the next season brings, may we dedicate ourselves to God in it, may we surrender to His will, may we seek Him first.

May it be going back to God, and maybe even back to church?

Love this song about going back to church:

  1. I’m looking forward to moving forward in this new season. This back to school and return to fall season – but with fresh beginnings of so many things. Enjoyed your post…visiting from FMF!
