It's Five Minute Friday! Each week a flashmob of bloggers internet-wide gathers to write for five minutes (no stopping, no editing!) on a prompt provided by sweet Kate, then links up and shares a little comment love. For more info, more posts, and/or to join in, head here!

A hand, gentle but firm, guides you to a better path
(it may be dark at times, and steep, but better is the end to which it leads)
A Comforter steps beside you, to strengthen when the way grows dark
(a light He sets within you, to shine both for yourself and others)
An Advocate He is, as well, when tears choke and words fail
(He carries tears and broken hearts alike, and lays them at the Father's feet)
When lies beset
(you're not good enough, brave enough, right enough, pure enough, true enough, just enough)
He stands with Truth
Don't give up
(He has already won the battle)
Don't give in to the lies
(He is Truth)
Keep the faith
(for He went before you, He abides within you, and He comes after you)
Hold fast
(for He holds you)

What a beautiful reminder that keeping the faith is simply reaching out for Jesus' hand--he's been there, he's done that, he'll guide us through each step of the way.
