Another week of Five Minute Friday, where writers come together, to put thoughts to written word in five minutes of unedited writing.
This week’s word: OPEN
Light filters in the crack of curtains, dark. Eyes squint trying to adjust to the light peeking in. I open the curtains and give time for my eyes to adjust, to be ready to open to the day.
Have it my way, many mornings I would stay in the dark much longer, lingering, delaying the opening of my eyes. Content to stay put. Stay still. Stay quiet.
I find life parallels the spiritual. Too many times, I would rather stay closed, shut. Not letting Light in to those places that need light to shine. Instant light hurts. It reveals sin. Yet just as I want to hide from light during the morning, I thrive from the warmth of the light as it filters into a room.
The same way with the Light of the World. As I allow my eyes to be opened by Him and His light to filter in, there is comfort. Healing. Warmth. Forgiveness. Life.
5 minutes up.
“Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your Law.” – Psalm 119:18
