Don’t focus on the test, focus on the Giver.

I am joining the #FiveMinuteFriday crew tonight for the writing prompt: T E S T ~ I am mixing in my #write31days of Art.

We have 5 minutes to write and here I go:


Oh, golly see I despise tests. Always have. Equals anxiety. On another note, life is real. I heard it once that this life was a test.  To see whether we would pass on to the right place, with God, eventually.

If that is the case, can I pretend it’s not?

Because tests. Oh, golly gee.

Where does Grace fit in a test taking reality?

Maybe it’s Grace for all who will receive it and for those who don’t,…well they just love tests and think they can pass them all on their own without any help.

I dunno.

I prefer a life of Grace, Art, Freedom and Creativity any day over hold-my-breath-suck-it-up-pray-you-got-it-all-right kinda  living.

Because I know I won’t.

I need you Jesus! I need you God! I need you Holy Spirit!

Carry me through the watery tests of life, Father and lavish sweet love upon me like butter on a fresh slice of artisan style bread.


You took the test for me Jesus.

You passed.

Now I can live.

  1. Meg, Gods grace is sufficient! My 31 days series last year was “31 Stories of God’s Grace!” Blessed to be your neighbor at FMF this week.

  2. Hi Meg, I so appreciate these ending thoughts: “You took the test for me Jesus. You passed. Now I can live.” That sums up the whole of Grace so simply!! Thank you for these Grace-Notes today. –Blessings my friend!

    1. I liked the end too lol. This post sort of sums up how I sometimes come before God. My doubts and fears mangled, income to Him and He reminds me of the simple, beautiful truth! Thank you so much, friend.

  3. I’ll be honest, I never liked hearing “life is a test.” It made life seem less real and like we’d get a do-over if things didn’t work out the way we wanted. But I think it takes away from the fact that we have to live, and live fully, appreciating all that is around us.
