Five Minute Friday {Messenger}

Good afternoon, and happy Friday! I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo today for Five Minute Friday - please join us as we write for 5 minutes together. For more information and to link up, click here.

Five Minute Friday

Today our topic is Messenger


Does the message define the messenger? Sometimes, yes. Is that why we shoot the messenger?

I've written my life's message, even spoken it to groups large and small. This message that burns and refines and focuses, even drives. Fire in my bones. 

God's extravagant love compels reciprocation from His beloved. He shows us how in His Word.

Perhaps a message won't define this messenger, but it does at least paint my feet beautiful. 

"How beautiful on the mountains
    are the feet of the messenger who brings good news,
the good news of peace and salvation,
    the news that the God of Israel reigns!"
            -Isaiah 52:7 (NLT)

And who needs pedicures when the Gospel does that?

Your message? You'll have to ask the Sender of messages for it, but when you do, He'll answer with gladness. And when for Him you bring it to the outcast, broken, poor, messy, tossed-aside, hopeless on the mountain of life ... such a praise you will bring to Him.

A messenger of love.


Happy writing, Friends! Be it for five minutes, or more. And don't forget to encourage other Five-Minute-Friday writers too!


  1. Yes...messages of love! Something I've been trying to do more intentionally lately.

    Thanks for the wonderful words! Visiting from Five Minute Friday :)
