FMF – Need

So it’s the first time I’ve written in several months.  I NEED to write.  I need to put words on paper and feelings into my words.  I need to connect with my friends, my blog readers, my fellow writers.  I need to be a mom, a worker, a student, a friend, a Christian.

We have a lot of needs as humans.  But for me, I struggle with needing balance.  I need to work and I need to play.  And I need to rest.

I’m going to visit my sister this weekend.  She’s having a baby shower.  I get to be a hostess.  I need to hug my little sister and rub her pregnant belly and give her many different things.  I love her so very much.  I need her to stay healthy and strong and to stay my sister.

What does God need from us?

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
    And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:8

And with that, my time is up.

This post was part of Five Minute Friday, a weekly link up where a group of writers get together and write on a given prompt.  Join us here and then read other people’s words.  It’s fun.

  1. Isn’t it cool to have a God who needs something from us? Loved this post.

    I’ve never had much to do with kids, and early in our marriage barb was invited to a baby shower.

    I asked her, “Aren’t you supposed to, like, wash babies in basins? Or is this a celebration of the kid’s first shower?”

    She rolled her eyes so far and so fast, I thought they were going to stick for sure.

  2. You’re writing again! Yay!

    You’ve quoted my favorite verse here. In fact, it’s hanging on the wall, just to my right. Do justly, love mercy, walk humbly. So simple and yet so incredibly difficult. May God give us grace to live as He wants us to live.
