If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Fine Minute Friday: Steady

It's time for Five Minute Friday where we are given a prompt and have five minutes to write about it. You can go here to join up with FMF if you'd like.

Today's prompt is:  Steady

Steady as she goes (keep on at the same speed and the same direction)
Steady rain (just a nice even rain, not a downpour)
Going Steady ( dating relationship commitment to one person)

Steady is a nice word. I like having a steady friend, someone who I can count on. Someone who will be there when I need to talk or vent or cry. But no matter how steady a friend they may be, they can't always be there. No one could be there last year when I had to go through those surgery room doors to have a mastectomy. Not even my husband.

But you know there is one friend who can be (and was) with me all the time no matter what and that is Jesus. Not only can He be with me, He promised He would never leave me. He is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. No one is more steady than He is. Thank you Jesus!

  1. I like the word 'steady', too. It makes me want to be a better person, the kind who is unflustered by life's weirdnesses.

    Great post!

  2. I didn't really think about all that Steady embodies until I had to think about and write on it. :) I'm so sorry you had to have a mastectomy, but how beautiful it is that Jesus was with you (and is, of course!) through that and all that, no doubt, followed.

    I liked how you shared the different definitions. You made me think. :)

  5. Thankful for your steadiness in the midst of difficulties...didn't know about your surgery last year...so thankful Jesus is the steady rock in your life as He is mine. And yes, where would we be without our steady husbands, family and friends? I also like it when someone holds the ladder steady when I have to climb! Have a steady, beautiful day!

  7. I love the direction your post took on today's prompt. Mine went off on a total tangent. My brain does that more often than I'd like to admit. I bet people wonder if I'm on drugs half the time. LOL
