For the month of October, I am joining many bloggers in a challenge to write every single day for 31 days. I learned about this challenge through another challenge I participate in most weeks. The “Five Minute Friday” challenge is going to expand to last the whole month! Each entry, will be five minutes unedited of writing on a particular theme – found on Kate’s blog.Today’s theme is “almost.”
In the Bible, we see the word “almost” a few times. When God’s Word uses the word, almost, it generally has to do with someone’s fate.
The Great Almost’s by God’s Faithful
Paul almost died.
[S]ince it was because of the work of Christ that he almost died. He risked his life so that he could make up for your inability to serve me.
Please stop wounding me! You have almost beaten me to death!They have almost destroyed me here on the earth, but I do not reject your precepts.
His “almost” was a lifeline. He may have been barely hanging on to his faith and Yahweh – the One True God, but by God’s strength – he was hanging on…
But as for me, my feet almost slipped; my feet almost slid out from under me.
Our Great Almost’s
We may be almost hanging on to our faith, to God,
to His Word, but as long as we are hanging on. That’s all that matters!
