Every Friday Lisa-Jo hosts a writing party, inviting us to write for five minutes flat with no editing, no back tracking. Our prompt this morning is BEYOND. 


Beyond the weariness is a God who strengthens.
Isaiah 40:29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Beyond the fear is a God who protects.
Psalms 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid?

Beyond the moment of self doubt is a God who finds me worthy enough to sacrifice His son.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son.......

Beyond the physical pain is a God who heals.
Psalms 30:2 Lord my God, I called you for help and you healed me

Beyond the financial burdens is a God who provides. 
1 Timothy 6:17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant or put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

I am so thankful for a God who takes care of me.
Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feed them. Are you not much more valuable than they?


Come join the party!
