Another foray into Five Minute Friday to give my brain and creativity a bit of a work-out this morning.
We write:for 5 minutes flat, no editing, no tweaking or self-critiquing.
Today’s word is ‘After’.
After – A New Era
Broken lives made new
Yet…it all takes time
Scars remain from damaged bodies, hearts and minds
After-effects linger on
After-shocks of abuse and trauma
cannot be fully erased here
though we wish they could
We live in the After Zone
the ‘here-but not-here-yet’ of the Kingdom.
Not a disaster zone
He is here
We have Love, Life, Hope
We have His Spirit
We have His Grace
changing us from glory to glory.
We are Resurrection People
We are those who came after the 12
Disciples following our Lord and Master
there will be a New Era
after all has passed.
Christ will return in glory
A new Dawn
there will be no more tears or pain
for they’ll be former things passed away.
Rainbows after rain
Sweetness after pain
Fullness of Joy in His Presence
I can’t wait for that ‘Happy Ever After’ day to come
when He sees us
and we see Him as He Is
Are you ready?
Do hop over and join in the fun!
