Five Minute Friday: Settle

Contemplate

Gentle Reader,

Our Fearless Leader was busy celebrating her book launch, so for the first time in the history of everything, there was no prompt shared around 6:45 (Pacific Daylight Time) last night. I guess we’ll forgive her. This time.

No, seriously: We are all so happy for you, Kate! Your book is awesome. You deserve all the accolades and sales. Truly.

So, this morning, she says: settle.

Go.

We don’t have to settle, you know
For castles made of sand
And kingdoms prone to burn
For frauds who prance as princes
And trends so fast to turn

We don’t have to settle, you know
For offices tucked in corners
And accounts that bulge with cash
For grandiose titles after names
And powers gone in flash

We don’t have to settle, you know
For the building of the platform
And the chasing of the “like”
For the hollowing out of voice
And the statistics, hope they spike

We don’t have to settle, you know
For the things this place can give
And what we’re supposed to want
For all that will fade one day
And the stuff that others flaunt

We don’t have to settle, you know
Because there is more than meets our eyes
Because there is deeper than this
Because there is One who loves us so
Because righteousness and peace, they kiss

Stop.

  1. Marie, I’m next door to you in the linkup today at #16. Thank you for this important reminder that we don’t have to settle for the temporary, often meaningless things the world has on offer. Jesus has so much more for us than that. I hope you have a very blessed time this weekend remembering and celebrating what He has done and who He is.

    1. It’s easy to forget that we don’t have to settle, isn’t it? This world seems to…immediate. Permanent. We all need to be reminded, and often, that there is so much more.

  2. I’m encouraged, Marie! I agree we don’t have to settle. This which we see with our eyes is not all there is… Thank YOU, God! #FMF #51 in last place this week… for now. Bless you to write more of the truth Father gives you…
