Five Minute Friday: "Send"

Our Mistress of Ceremonies for the Five Minute Friday is Kate over at Heading Home.  Hope you link up with us and join the fun.

It's Friday, the sun's finally out after a week of dreary weather, and I am ate up with depression this morning.  Sigh 
I often think I would be better if I were sent off somewhere.  Maybe my melancholy is from the feeling of not being sent out because of cabin fever. 
No, no, no!  I must write about something else, something more cheery and acceptable. 
Thank God that He never sends me out of His presence for feelings other than perfect ones.  I boldly approach for grace and mercy.  He will not send me away empty handed.
A few days ago, my devotional reading was about Isaiah asking God to send him where he was needed.  I know I'm to be sent, but I don't want to go if I'm not ready.  It would break my heart to be sent on a mission that failed.


  1. Oh wow your statement "Thank God that He never sends me out of His presence" hit my emotions like a tidal wave!!! Thank you for that truth today ~ I will ALWAYS be in the presence of the Lord because He resides in me :)

    1. Colossians 1:27 - To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory

  2. This is a beautiful piece of spontaneous writing! The weather has been DREADFUL where you are, and I hope that you feel a lot better soon. Look how far you've come!

  3. Love your honesty. I know I'm afraid to fully trust God to send me where there's the possibility of failure...
