Five Minute Friday: Because


Faith isn’t always the easy option, is it? Life has a way of coming at us, beating us up a bit, and leaving us asking “why”. We always want to understand the reason behind certain things, but it’s not always that easy.

Some things, our human brain can’t even understand. At my Bible study this week, we talked about how God is all-knowing, all-present, and lives without the boundaries of time. Can you imagine living without time? My brain can’t even handle it!


We always want to know the “whys”, but sometimes, we have to accept a simple “because”.

Because He is God.

Because His understanding far outweighs my own.

Because His plans are always better.

Because He loves us.

We can try to get into the nitty gritty and rationalize things by our human understanding. But really, all we get out of that is more confusion and a headache. We can’t understand it all, because it’s outside of our realm of understanding.

And you know what? That can be *really* hard to accept sometimes.

Because I am human.

But all the end of the day, it all boils down to this: God loves us. His love is undeniable if we just open our eyes and let ourselves see the many blessings He rains down on us.

Because He loves us.




It’s Friday, which means it’s time for Five Minute Friday, where writers from around the world gather to write on one word for just five minutes. Freely. Unedited. Unscripted.

    1. Oh I feel ya there! It always keep asking, even though sometimes, we just have to accept the unknown. It’s. So. HARD! 😉

  1. Here from FMF… God has really been bringing home to me His incomprehensible majesty, power, “bigness”, and love. It’s unbelievable to me that when we see things like the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls or other beautiful parts of creation, we’re only seeing the fringes of His being. Imagine heaven, when we see Him in the full radiance of His glory… amazing.

    Sorry, got carried away with a praise rant. I love your post! Enjoy your weekend! ❤

    1. No worries about getting carried away! How right you are…it’s just a teeny, tiny bit of His majesty shining through. We just can’t even imagine His full glory!

  2. The best answer is always “because God loves us”. You have similar them running through your FMF post as me. Great minds think alike. Wonderful hanging out with you last night as always.
