If I Knew I Could, I Would. . .

I’m joining Lisa-Jo at Gypsy Mama again for 5 Minute Friday.  Join us! Just write for 5 minutes–no edits, no extra time–just write and post.  The theme today is “If I knew I could, I would. . .

GO
If I knew I could find the words that would convince you that God loves you, I would drop everything and spill those words out for you to hear and watch your eyes and heart light up.

If I knew the acts in my life that would show you how much God loves you, and what peace you would find if you knew Him, I would stop everything else and just do those things that would show you.

If I knew I could find another person in this world who could help you to see God and have faith the way I do, I would push aside my introverted nature and introduce you to that person and serve you tea and cupcakes while you talked.

If I knew that I could point you to a passage in scripture that would speak to your heart and show you His, I would sit with you in silence as you read and pray for God’s presence at that moment.

If I knew that I could pray for God to pursue you and prepare your heart and that nothing I could do would help, I would pray anyway because I love you that much, and because I know God loves you that much, and because I know hope and faith and love prevail. . . .

STOP

  1. Hi. I’m Julie. I jumped over from Five Minute Friday. I love your wisdom. Don’t we all (believers) just want to do that. Oh, to see what others need, really need!

    Beautiful!

  2. Elizabeth, Another 5 minutes well spent! Several people came to mind as I read this, people I love so much I keep praying that I will be able to find the words, take the actions, know the right scripture passages to show them how much God loves them. Thank you for taking 5 minutes to share this. Peace, Linda

  3. I know God loves me because I have friends like you.
