Writing for five unedited minutes on the prompt “Embrace” for Five Minute Friday.
Change, my new and unfamiliar friend
wraps me in an embrace
these cool spring mornings.
Every time I see a new sunrise
I embrace a morning of change.
Nothing is new with you, Lord.
A thousand days are one to you.
But for me
change is constant as ocean waves
especially in this year of movement.
I weather these upcoming changes
with thankfulness and reflection.
Your constancy steadies me
as I prepare to take a leap.
Your faithfulness carries me through
this windy, wild season.
Your presence walks with me
as I navigate new places.
I thank you for new life.
I thank you for your perfect timing.
I thank you for staying by my side
when everything is shifting.
No motion is too strong for you.
No wind is too powerful.
When you called Peter out on the water
you had perfect dominion.
I am stepping out of the boat
placing my feet on the unstable surface
and reaching for the security
of your waiting embrace.

Questions for reflection:
How is God calling you to step out of the boat and onto the water?
How does God’s character anchor you in times of change?
