This is the place where once a week we take the chance to just write, and not worry if it’s just right or not.
For five minutes flat.
Here’s how the game works: you simply stop, drop and write. Set your words free. Don’t edit them, don’t fret over them, don’t try to make them perfect.
That’s how Five Minute Friday was born. Want to play? It’s fun. And it’s never too late to link up. Also? The awesome Karen whipped up a Facebook page where we can connect and talk all things writing beyond just Fridays! Click here to join us.
Then come take the Five Minute Friday challenge.
1. Write for only five minutes.
2. Link back here and invite others to play along.
3. Go high five the word artist who linked up before you with an awesome comment.
It’s liberating; give it a a try and see.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:

indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God says: GO!
Nothing Can Separate Us from God’s Love
What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.
Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?(As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
No nothing can separate us from God’s love … except for ourselves!
But then grace says … no NOTHING means NOTHING! I cannot even separate me from my Father God’s love; no not even if I try my darnedest
Ahhhh Grace … a man who perserveres through my doubt and fears. Jesus, who never leaves nor forsakes us, even in our darkest hour.
So I muddle through all the mire that this life brings to my doorstep. Sounds worse than it is, really.
The worst so far is cancer. Is that infirmity that frightens all of humanity. That dis-ease that causes the very thing within us that triggers it … resentment and anger.
indeed, NOTHING … we have persevered, we beat the first round and we are now in the second inning … It doesn’t mean we are not loved. Cancer is not a death sentence for some unknown felony in life … it is a trial like any other and we choose …
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live,
