5 Minute Friday- Middle

This is another 5 Minute Friday. You can read more about it at Kate Motaung. Today's word is "middle." 

This morning when I saw what the writing prompt was, I thought of the saying "between a rock and a hard place." I felt like I was between two hard places in several situations in my life. But then, God reminded me of Moses and the children of Israel. They were between a rock and a hard place or more specifically, Pharaoh and the Egyptian army and the Red Sea. Can you imagine the trepidation, fear and sheer panic; especially for those with children?  It made my "middle" seem like a walk in the park, but it reminded me that no matter where we are, God is there. He IS a very present help in the time of trouble. He is right there in the middle of our pain, grief sorrow, joy and gladness. He is the All-Sufficient One! He promises to carry us through the middle.


  1. Oh I feel like a rock in a hard place too this new year! There are so many big decisions, big prayers, and big concerns. One day at a time. Thankful the ROCK is with us in these hard places. :) Jenn FMF Neighbor

    1. Hi Jennifer and AMEN! The ROCK is with us and able to keep us in the hard places. Praise to Him, the Rock of our Salvation!

  2. I love your take on "middle". I am grateful for the Rock who carries and guides me through the hard places.

  3. I love the reassurance that even when we are in a hard place God is our Rock and he is with us in the middle of it all. Visiting from FMF.
