“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” – Zephaniah 3:17
Ben’s skin is well on its way to healed so I was hoping for a normal week. That’s kind of like praying for patience, isn’t it?
The tearing down & rebuilding of the deck that used to be outside the kitchen doors began. My congestion landed heavily in my left ear, so I went to the doctor to have my suspected ear infection confirmed. Then the next day Cate had strep throat and ran a fever of at least 100.
Some normal meals, conversations, and errands happened. I still loaded and unloaded the dishwasher, did multiple loads of laundry, lotioned Ben’s face and hands, and chased a toddler. But we’ve had interruptions, two antibiotics to remember to take, and extra hammering right in the midst of our daily lives.
I guess, really, that is indeed normal.
And God always shows up.
Even more than that, He saves us, delights in us, and rejoices over us with singing.
Hear God sing over us even when life is interrupted.
When I saw the Five Minute Friday prompt last night when I was laying on the couch, I immediately thought of this verse. I wish I could remember the worship song with these words I used to know. Regardless, I’m joining Kate Motaung and the FMF crew for this weekly writing challenge. Take the prompt, write for five minutes flat, and share.
