Fall 2018,  Five Minute Friday

Moment By Moment

This post was written for the weekly Five Minute Friday blog linkup. Each week, writers respond to a one-word prompt by writing for five minutes, then share their unedited writing with each other. Click here to join the fun!

This week’s prompt: Repeat.

I repeat so many routines every day: taking pills in the morning, going to breakfast, going through the motions of my now-intuitive class schedule, doing homework. For the most part, I see the same people every day. I’m having a hard time not living on autopilot: it would be easy to walk through the week without giving it much thought.

However, I know that each day brings new opportunities and new challenges. God wants to teach me new things every day. His mercies are new every morning. He didn’t create me to do the same thing over and over.

I won’t repeat the same routine every day; I’ll keep my eyes open to what God is doing each moment.
