The Dot On the Horizon {Five Minute Friday}

I was at a loss for what to write today. And then I saw what Lisa Jo and the followers of her Facebook page landed on for the 5 Minute Friday prompt. And I knew I had to write.



I see it there…that dot on the horizon.

That thing that I’m hoping for. Praying for.

I would be so much better there.

I could grow.


That dot on the horizon, so close yet so far away.

The road is both long and short between here and there.

The glare of the sunshine creating pools of glassy water. Pools that aren’t really there.

These pools camoflauge the road ahead of me.

I cannot see where, when, if the road turns.

I can only see my feet. Plod. Plod. Plod.

And that dot.

He, however.

He sees it all.

Knows the road.

The turns.

His hand guides me ever gently. Resting softly of the small of my spiritual back.


I do not know if I will reach that dot on the horizon. I so badly want to.

So badly it hurts.

He knows.

So I take a deep breath and trust. And take one more step.

Tomorrow I will choose to trust again.

Knowing He sees beyond the glassy pools of mirage.

Beyond the dot on the horizon.

The here. The Now. And the Then.

    “Tomorrow I will choose to trust again.” <– Love this. Every day is a choice and we must choose to trust the one who sees beyond the mirage… yes, yes.

    really love this! I’ve been doing 5 minute fridays for fun, for awhile, and this one was hard for me. love this, wish I had read this and then written, but isn’t that just how perspective works? Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Aw, thanks!! Yeah, I can never read Lisa Jo’s, or anyone else’s before I write mine. Ha!! Otherwise I end up trying to sound like them or something. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. This somehow inspired me to tears. Thank you for reminding me not to lose sight of that hope that’s out there, that hope that drives me to set goals.

  4. Like your image of the dot–there, but not yet distinguishable. It draws near with hope and expectation, and with trust in God. Very nice.

    Such a beautiful analogy! Sometimes the starting is the hardest part but yes, He is there to gently push us… xo
