Welcome to Day 4 of #write31days! The Five Minute Friday Free Writes prompt is the word hope. Since the beginning, when God separated the light from the darkness, we have had day and night. He put the sun, moon and stars in place, and they continue to do their jobs day after day.
This brings comfort and hope, knowing that God is still in control.
What majesty and grandeur our God provides for us!
I look at the beauty and the continuous daily cycles and I know my hope is not in vain. It is rooted in Christ and is sure. While composing the haiku for today, I couldn’t stop with just one stanza.
Finding Hope in God’s Handiwork
Sunlight’s fingers glow
Lake reflects the looming clouds
Mingling with the trees
Beauty meets my eyes
Colors purple, pink and blue
In the evening sky
Twilight hovers near
Darkness throws her blanket round
Lending time for sleep
After night comes dawn
Daytime always reappears
Bringing rays of hope
After the flood, this was part of God’s promise to Noah:
As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.
