When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Five Minute Friday - Trust

Around here I like to participate in an exercise called Five Minute Fridays. We write for five minutes flat. We write because we want to, not because we have to. We write for fun, for joy, for discovery.

On Fridays we just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us?

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back to the Gypsy Mama and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them.

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:

Hebrews 13:5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
My life has been filled with too many dark things. I learned early that trust was not something to take for granted. I learned to do things by myself and for myself. I learned that I could depend on myself and not those around me. 
Time passed and I grew up. One of the hardest lessons in my life has been to learn to trust again. To learn that I do not need to carry all the burdens for myself, that I do not need to depend only on myself. I had to learn that there were those who could be trusted and would not let me down.
Trust is something that I still struggle with.  In those struggles, I have learned to trust the only One that really matters. I have learned to know that He is there.  That He loves me.  That He is mindful of me, and that He cares for my needs.  I have learned that He will be with me, not only in the good times, but also in the difficult ones.  That although He doesn't take away the trials, He can and will heal the pain.  
I have learned that even in the darkness, there is peace.    


Now it's your turn.  What can you write about trust in just five minutes?
Don't forget to join us over here with your words.  


  1. Yes, Patty Ann, there is peace! So thankful He doesn't give up on us. He will never let us down--even in the darkest moments! So thankful you found the One who could always be trusted.

  2. I know the feeling your are talking about, at least somewhat. As a young adult, some things happened that made it difficult to trust again..but I have learned...and still learning to hold on to God and that in the end he never fails.

  3. Wow, very brave. I'd be locked up if you read mine!

  4. I really enjoyed reading your five minutes on Trust. I do love the Lord and trust in him. I feel that he has walked with me during times of struggle and moments of joy.
