Today is Five Minute Friday. A flash mob of sorts; women from all over getting together to write on the same topic, for the same amount of time; but with different results. Today's word is HANDS...
Hands...my first response if I have my hands. I have scars on them, I chew my nails, my fingers are short and stubby instead of long and slender.
But...then I thought about it. Does God call me to have beautiful hands? Or does He call me to do beautiful things with my hands?
When I worship...are my fists clenched? Or do I open my hands and raise them up to worship Him?
At home...are my hands idle? Or do I use them to honor God by serving my family?
In the morning...do they play the latest game on my phone? Or do I use them to hold God's Word so I can immerse myself in it?
Do my hands reach out to others? Do I greet people with a hand shake, a pat on the back or do I simply keep my hands at my side and distance myself from people?
Do I use my hands to write an encouraging note? Or are my hands more likely to write a discouraging status on Facebook?
Do I use my hands to write out checks to tithe or give beyond that? Or are my hands writing out checks so I can have more stuff?
Are my hands part of the hands and feet of Jesus??
These are the the questions I will be pondering today!
