Middle

Isaiah 41:10 Don't Be Afraid - Free Bible Verse Art Downloads - Bible  Verses To Go

Joining again this week with the #Five Minute Friday group of writers who write for 5 minutes on a one-word prompt. This week’s prompt is: Middle

I am a middle-child; probably past middle-age; still in the middle of menopause; still living in the middle of coming out of Lockdowns; still in the middle of trying to get back to work.

In the middle of the has been, but not yet of the Kingdom of God; in the middle of being renewed; in the middle of being made into the likeness of Christ; in the middle of being made holy.

As they say: ‘Life is not a rehearsal’ and I, like most others, are having to navigate our way through this life with many twists and turns and ways we have never been before, it is new, we have never walked this way before, we don’t get to try it out and then go back and do it again, better next time.

Life is the here and now, the daily nitty gritty, daily decisions, daily pressures, daily joys and sorrows, laughs and tears. I have never walked this way before, yesterday is past, tomorrow still to come, I am in today and am blessed that God has said, “I am with you”; “I am with you in this; I am with you in this messy middle” and that is what makes the difference – God being with me.

  1. It’s neat to see this theme emerging in most participants writing today of God’s presence sustaining us in the middle. Thank you for sharing!

  2. “Life is nor rehearsal.”
    That thought would bring me sorrow
    but for my reversal;
    I’m rehearsing for tomorrow.
    Today I will make bad mistakes,
    and learn from them, I truly hope,
    so when a new congruence breaks
    I will be more prepared to cope
    for having analyzed the flaws
    that appeared the previous day,
    and turned their lessons into laws
    that will better guide my way
    from the rubble of the past
    to where a brighter die is cast.
