Five Minute Friday: Rhythm

from the series on, come join in the writing fun!

Rhythm is a really hard word to spell, first of all.  It reminds me of dancing and music and band...  It's a beat, a steadiness that gets deep within you to drive you forward.  When you have rhythm, it doesn't matter what's going on around you, you are unwavering in the steady beat.  Even when the tempo is a "wierd" one, you stay constant and unwielding.

So how am I going to tie this into my life?  I don't do ballet much anymore or bust out my flute to play the "ice cream man song" with my bestie (hi, Linds!).  But I do have an internal rhythm that drives me forward and keeps me steady.

Philippians 3:14
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
Right now, my life feels a bit out of control.  I have so many things pulling me in so many different directions.  It's so easy to feel lost in everyone else's notes...but this is a good reminder today to hold strong to my internal metronome, Jesus, and He will never fail me. 


  1. Loved how you tied rhythm in with a Bible verse!! And how our life can get out of balance "lost in everyone else's notes". That was great. And isn't that word hard to spell (lol)?
    Visiting from Five on Friday,

  2. I love the imagery of Jesus as a metronome, clocking out a steady and unwavering beat. Always bringing us back. Thanks for sharing!

  3. "unwavering in the steady beat"

    what a beautiful take on the word rhythm... and i agree, it is super hard to spell and almost as hard to type!

  4. I'll still play the ice cream song with you any time. :-)
