Five Minute Friday ~ Connect
Last year, I was introduced to five minute Friday writing prompts hosted on the blog Heading Home. The rules are simple, just write for 5 minutes on the word prompt. The first word prompt for this year is connect.
When I think about the word connect, I think about connecting to the internet. I grew up during the dial-up time of the internet. It was difficult having to wait to connect and sometimes it just wouldn't connect at all. Then, I would get connected only to have my mother tell me to get off the internet because she needed to call someone. If only our children (or grandchildren if you have them) knew how difficult it was to get connected to the internet. Wow! They would be shocked to not have that instant connection.
There is one connection that has always been instant and will always be instant until God returns to bring us to His home with him. How do we keep an instant connection with God? It's fairly simple, read His word and pray every day. Remember that song you use to sing at church, "read your Bible, pray every day and you'll grow, grow, grow." Reading your Bible and praying every day keeps an instant connection to God. He loves us and wants to keep that connection with us.
