How is it possible that we’ve already reached the end of September? Unbelievable! I don’t know about you, but I feel like I blinked and nearly missed it.

Regardless of how quickly time is passing by, I’m so happy that you’ve given up some of your precious time to be here with us this week!

If you’re new to Five Minute Friday, you can catch the scoop right over here.

We’re kicking off October 1st, and the Five Minute Friday crew has added a special twist to the challenge: namely, to write each of your 31 Days posts in five minutes or less!

Our prompt for this week is:




[Tweet “Come #write with us! This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is: DOUBT”]


Doubt is a slippery fellow.

One step on his foot, and he’ll grab your whole leg and pull you down so fast you won’t even know what hit you.

Peter will tell you all about it. He’d testify that as soon as you take your eyes off the Truth, doubt takes over and you’ll sink into it.

And before you know it, you’re flailing around, gasping and treading water, “blown and tossed about by the wind.

We need the Rock.


Lead me to the rock


We desperately need the Rock of Truth, the One who keeps our foot from slipping, because we’re oh, so prone to slip.

So we cry out like Peter, and if we reach for the right One, He holds out His hand and sets our feet upon solid ground. The unchanging One, in whom there are no shadows of turning.

When you feel your foot slipping, friend, stand firm. Don’t go down that route. Grab hold of the Truth hidden in your heart, that you might not slip and slide right into despair.

For doubt is a slippery fellow.


“On Christ the Solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.”
