It’s that time again…when I join Lisa-Jo and hundreds of others in writing 5 minutes…unedited. Yes, I said UNEDITED.

Today’s prompt: GRACEFUL
I am participating in the Hello Mornings Bible Study. We are studying 1 Peter and there are small online groups that check in on Twitter or FB as an accountability factor.
You can check out the #hellomornings hashtag. My small group is #hmeb for hello mornings early bird.
As I read the study and dove into the passages I thought I would get this. I’ve study the Bible my whole life, spent my life in church…I knew/know what to do.
The comments made my others are so graceful.
Who knew there was so much truth in a greeting written by Peter? Or in the closing of his letter?
I am so NOT graceful in this area.
So, I wait. I wait for the Lord to speak to me.
I use the online resources suggested and while not a computer dummy, it took me a while to figure out how to use them.
Still…I long to read the words in 1 Peter and glean the deep understanding so gracefully displayed and shared by others.
But…I think that will be a while in coming. So…I wait.
I try to learn how to use the tools more effectively.
And I stumble along…tripping, sometimes falling…but always listening.
still small voice of the Saviour…meeting me in all my clumsy and not so graceful state.
Thank you to my #hellomornings friends and especially the leader for your encouragement.
I will sit.
I will be still.
I will dig deep.
I will know that He IS God.
And I will…eventually…get the deep meaning He is trying to show me.
