Five Minute Friday, Inspiration


Good morning or should I say GREAT morning.  I’m joining Kate Matoung this morning to write for only five minutes on the word – morning.

blog Isaiah 601

He makes an ordinary good morning and extra-ordinary great morning.  I love sitting here doing my Bible studies and writing in the early morning  after my husband leaves for work.  Not sure how I will fit that in when he retires later this year.  Maybe with his wit he will help me write.

I love mornings like today when He shows up with beautiful sunrises.  I’ve sit here lately enjoying them, and all the doves that have gathered around on the cool mornings.  I snapped this picture of them Monday morning.   I loved it when I walked in the kitchen to pour another cup of coffee and my eye caught something I had never seen and there they were.  God showed up and showed off.  I had just shared with a group I’m in how the day we came home from a nephew’s funeral so sad and pulled in the driveway and our first dove was sitting on the eave over our door – now there are at least eight.


Ask God to show up today.  Ask Him to show up in your dark, weak and sad moments.  He offers hope. He offers peace.

Why are we so surprised when He shows up?  Why are we surprised when He goes above and beyond what we have prayed for and about?  When God shows up in the midst of all life’s circumstances,  the impossible becomes a possibility – a miracle right in front of us. He shows up over and over and over.  Don’t miss Him today!

  1. I enjoy watching the beauty of the sunrises too. Isn’t His creation beautiful? You have highlighted, as well, one of my favourite quotes from the Bible. Morning is definitely the perfect time to be still. (visiting from FMF).


  2. I love this reflection and how the 5 minute prompts allow such simple wisdom. I hope sometime get back to doing the same..So sad to hear about your nephew, but how beautiful God brings small moments of grace! Visiting from next door and #smallwonder!

  3. I’m always surprised by Him, too! I’ve pondered this, and I can’t decide whether I’m surprised because of my lack of faith, or because He’s so much bigger than I am, He’s constantly doing things I can’t even begin to imagine. I suspect there’s a hefty dose of both. Thank you for sharing this with us at Grace & Truth!
