Five Minute Friday: Familiar

Slower paced days are good times to be thankful.  I’m thankful for any pauses in life that we fill with gratitude.  It’s certainly a good time of year to be thankful for family.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the FMF community.

This week’s word is: familiar.


Familiar feels safe and comfortable.

It’s the unknown that feels scary.

Even if the familiar is as comfortable and predictable as worn slippers, it can also be boring.

The truth is, we don’t have to fear the unknown. Frankly, it might be as terrible as we dread it will be.

But, our anchor is secure. Our hope is in the One who knows what we don’t.

We do know the end of the story, even if we don’t know the paths along the way.

We try so hard to make life predictable, but we can’t.

The reality is, we don’t know. We can’t control. We can’t plan for every contingency.

But, we can trust. We can consciously leave the familiar and step out into the unknown.

The bridge will appear beneath our feet.
