Only One Good

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:



Only One Good

Not one good, except G-d
You alone are good
You alone are worthy
You alone are holy

No matter how hard I try to be good
No matter how hard I try to save myself
No matter how strong I think I am

I fall back on You
And everything makes sense again

There is no one good
There is only You
You alone are good
You alone are G-d
One G-d
One King
One Ruler

No matter what the rulers and kings say
You are the Master of the universe
You are the Holy One of Israel

No matter what theologians say
No matter what philosophers attempt to articulate
You stand
You watch
You wait
You ache
That a broken heart
would turn towards You
A wandering eye
would finally look for You

No matter how proud and arrogant men may be
You stand
You watch
You wait
You ache
That they would fall on their faces
and run into You

You are good
Your ways are good
No, not one compares with You
Beautiful G-d
Beautiful Creator

Today’s Prompt: View

Higher Vision, His Vision

I begin to take a look,
A little deeper, a little higher
Today than I did yesterday
I see things differently than I did before

That conversation with Abba about His people Israel
Begins to change me inside,
Or at least I become aware of something I did not see before
I begin to see things differently
I begin to contemplate and wonder,
“What if Israel means Israel?”
The people of Israel, the place of Israel

The whole story I’ve understood begins to be upset, to shift, to change
My mindset and worldview begin to bow low at the possibility
that You might just be a little bigger
and a little different than the god I had imagined

Abba, I want to know what’s in Your heart
I want to believe the truth
I want Your living Word
To penetrate my heart and soul
I don’t want doctrines of man
To keep me from revelation
That comes straight from Your heart
I want life from and in You

Awaken my soul
Awaken my heart
Awaken my understanding

I want eyes that see
I want ears that can hear
I want a heart that is willing to be softened, transformed and changed
By You, and You alone

You are my source, my sustenance, my life
Show me what’s true
And let my heart expand to agree with You

For Day 1 go to
For Day 3 go to
