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 - Because

Today is a day I really look forward to.  It is a day to just write without worrying whether it is just right or not.  It is a day when we can say the words that need saying in just five minutes.  I hope that you take a few moments of your own time to join the rest of us over at Heading Home.  Kate writes good words.  Don't forget to leave a comment for the person who left their own words before yours.

Today, the prompt is:



Because we sin,
We needed a Savior.
Because we aren't perfect,
God sent His Son.
Because He sent His Son,
We know that He loves us.
Because that Son bleed and died,
We can have eternal life.
Because He was resurrected,
We can be resurrected like Him.
Because He atoned for our sins,
We can repent and become clean.
Because He loves us,
He wants us to love each other.
Because we try and be like Him,
We are kinder and more tender.
Because we try and do good,
other hearts are touched.
Because we care,
lives are changed.
Because He is the son of God,
my life has been blessed.
Because of His life and love and gifts,
All that I have is enough.


Now it is your turn.  What can you write in your own five minutes?  Don't forget to join us over at Kate's Place and share!


  1. That's an impressive list of "becauses," Patricia - one that is so easy to take for granted. I love that last line, in particular, because knowing and believing that he is enough is one of the greatest revelations. I love "meeting" you here on Fridays, friend :-)

  2. Yes! I love this! :) Stopping by from Five Minute Friday.
    Jen :)
