Five Minute Friday- RED

Known for passion. For blood. And what greater passion then the one spilled out for me?
It's known for anger. This 'seeing red'. It's known for Christmas.

It's hard to be passionate when I'm feeling scared and alone. It's hard to remember the red blood shed for me on the hard days and the long days.

But 'Jesus Loves Me, this I know' is more than just a song I teach my kids. It's a truth that heals my soul. Again and again. This refrain. Because I'm still weak.   And He's still strong. Because the passing of years has made me more child-like, not less. I still need to belong to Him.

I belong to Him. Does this mean He cares for me? It means I'm His. It means on the days my passion wanes, for life and love and HIM- His passion never fails. He's always red-hot for me. 

Joining in today on Five Minute Friday
Five Minute Friday
where a word is given and we write
unedited for 5 minutes and post. 


  1. The truths in "Jesus Loves Me" are so beautifully simple. Jesus loves me, this I know. I belong to Him. I am weak, but He is strong. It's so easy tangle up those truths in theology and responsibility once we're older, but they don't ever change. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Yes ... that's a song that still comes in the dead of night, its truth washing over me with peace ...
