Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write because we love words and the relief it is to just write them without worrying if they’re just right or not. So we take five minutes on Friday and write like we used to run when we were kids.
On Fridays we write with gusto, unselfconscious and flat out.

Today’s topic: Together
Five minutes set: GO
I know that God will never leave me.
I know that He is an ever-present help in trouble.
I know that God is Emmanuel. He is with us.
But I wouldn’t say I often reflect on God and me as “together.”
But we are.
Together is a family picnic or a cup of joe at Starbucks.
Together sits around a table at 5 o’clock. Sharing dinner and our day.
Together shares a story. And ice cream.
Together rides in the car and shops for shoes.
But if He is in fact ever-present, then we are in fact together.
If He is with us…. With me…. With you….. Then we are together.
He will never leave me. We are together.
As much as He is a big God in the big things, He is a Big God in the little things, too.
For the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deut. 31:9
He is together with me on family picnics, and drinking joe. We are together around the kitchen table and sharing ice cream. Together in the car and shopping for shoes.
He is altogether lovely and altogether … together with me.
And He is together with you. Right now. Reading this.
Your post reminds me of a quote I heard from Liz Curtis Higgs, "Just because God is silent does not mean He is not near." Even in the silence we are together with Him.
