Five Minute Friday: Favorite

Gentle Reader,

Seems like I’m not very good at keeping up with the party on the Twitters these days. I miss something special when I’m not able to participate. And it is special. Who but God would use social media to draw His daughters (and a few sons!) from all over the place into one unique writing community? We have many differences. We don’t always agree. Yet we cheer each other on.

Kate and my buddies.

We write about: favorite.


I am often shocked at the insanity that crosses my path. I shouldn’t be. People are crazy, whether in an official, clinical sense or not. The world makes less and less sense as the days go by. No logical standards seem to apply. Do what you want. Chase your feelings.

Pseudo-intellectual elitism. Arrogance run amok.

People like me are accused of being close-minded. Accused of “being afraid” of “searching.” Afraid of “wrestling” through the “deeper” questions.

It couldn’t possibly be that people like me think that some of the answers presented are wrong. Or just stupid.

The world seems to tilt further on its axis. The spin increases. My head whirls. And so I try to focus on this:

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; (4)

No matter what anyone says or does, God will never be knocked off of His throne.

That is my favorite truth.


My journey to faith. (15)

  1. I’m sorry. I know you were serious, but when you wrote, “People are crazy,” I actually laughed out loud. Yeah, they’re crazy. Sometimes Christians can be crazy as well. We’re human too. That’s when we turn to God and ask that He straighten us, or at least me, out.


  2. The world does seem a bit crazy right now and I wonder how much crazier it will all get. Up is down. Black is white. Wrong is right. My heart has been troubled by it all and my head spins, too, trying to make sense of the crazy. Thank you for your verse. I will hold on to it to keep my head focused on the One who deserves my attention.


    1. Thanks for coming by, Tara! I haven’t been able to head over to anyone’s blog to comment yet, but I’ll return the favor as soon as I can!


  3. Ah friend… I think we all tend to spin towards crazy from time to time! 😉 I am so thankful that His Kingdom reigns… and that it is here and now and not some far off place! Let Your Kingdom come on earth, as it is in Heaven, Lord!
