Five Minute Friday – Test

Joining with Kate at Heading Home

For five minutes of free writing.
“This is meant to be a free write, which means:
no editing, no over-thinking,
no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Just write.”

This week’s prompt – Test

Testing, Testing, Testing

Do you hear me?

Am I speaking clearly?

Do you understand what I am saying?

Are you willing to follow my words?

As with Samuel –
God called “Samuel, Samuel”

Can I anwser
“Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth.”

This is my test.

hearing
understanding
willing to follow the directions

I do not like tests.

I always worry about my answers.
(Even eye exams – did I give the right answer?
Is the 1st ‘click’ or the 2nd ‘click’ clearer?)

What does God want me to learn from my tests?
God, first, wants me to listen.
Secondly, God’s desire for me is willingness to try.
Thirdly, God wants me to lean on Him during the test and
not on my own understanding.

I may not always get an ‘A’ on God’s test,
but I can receive a “Well Done”.

That is good enough for me.

  1. I feel exactly the same about tests, including sight and hearing ones! A good reminder of a better attitude to take. Thank you. Your neighbour on FMF.
