Five Minute Friday - Need

Five Minute Friday - a free write, which means, as our hostess, Kate Motaung, says, " editing, no over thinking no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write."

This week's prompt is: NEED


Needs. We all have them. 

As human beings, our needs include food, water, and shelter, yet there are millions of people around the world right this moment that aren't getting the most basic of human needs met...and it's heart- and gut-wrenching.

As human beings, there are other needs that we have...the need to be loved, cared for, protected, to feel safe and secure in our own space. Yet millions more around the globe feel anything but! They feel lost, unloved, unprotected, vulnerable, afraid, and that no one cares about them. And, sadly, for some that may very well be the an earthly sense. 

Some, whether deliberately or unintentionally, have put themselves in that position; others have been thrust into that position through no fault of their own. It's just how circumstances have worked out for them. But nobody has to stay in that position. 

You matter who you matter where life has taken matter how bad things are for you right this very long as there is breath, there is hope!

No matter who you are...or where you are...or what you are...there is One Who loves you soooooo much that He gave His very life for you. 

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only 
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him 
should not perish, but have everlasting life"
(John 3:16)

Do you realize? Even if you had been the only person ever born, God still would have sacrificed His Son to die for you. And Jesus would have laid His life down willingly just for YOU!

God loves you so much! And He cares about you! And, no matter how bad things may look in the natural, He is there!

Yes, we all have needs, but the thing that we need the most is life in Christ Jesus...eternal life! Abundant life! The kind of life that comes only through a personal relationship with the One Who, when invited, comes to live inside of us. The kind of life and love that is not dependent on external circumstances. 

Needs. Yes, we all have them. 

"But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her"
(Luke 10:42)

May each of us choose "that good part, which shall not be taken away" and that is life in Christ Jesus.


Until next time... 

"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus"
(Philippians 4:19)

Welcome November!


  1. So true that we have so many needs, but if it were not for our needs, would we need a Savior? For it is in my weakness, that I realize His strengths, and in my sorrow, there comes His joy. Needs are a necessary thing, I do believe, just so we can learn more about Him... enjoyed your thoughts today about needs, and how thankful we are that we can take our needs to HIM! Blessings to you today :)

    1. Amen, Marilyn! When we are weak He is strong. Blessings to you! Have a wonderful week ahead! :)
