This week’s  Five minute Friday prompt word is FIX. You can join in the fun here:  As a writing community we write for 5 minutes(ish) no perfection or edits, the words just flow. #fiveminuteFriday

This week I am combining the word prompt Fix and #Godspromises which I am using to sustain me and hopefully encourage others in these strange times.

Problems come
Problems go
Where do go to put them right
Do you look to friends
Alcohol or drugs
Or do you simply think
Ignored they will go away

A problem shared
Is a problem solved
So society says
Is our help full of wisdom
Or out for what they can get
Is there such a thing as a quick fix

To fix the problem
Is not always simple
To do it correctly is not always quick
But we have a God
Who leaves his spirit
To dwell in us for when times are tough

God fixes the problem
But not in our way
Patience must endure
Faith will build
Trust will strengthen
The more we lean on him

So whatever
In your life needs fixing
Take God's hand
Let him hold you fast
Trust in his promises
For he fixes all things

  1. “A problem shared
    Is a problem solved”

    Yes, may we bring all our problems to the only One who is able to fix all things!


  2. “A problem shared is a problem solved.” This is so true. Why do we wait so long to share with the One who can help?? Thanks for this great post and reminder today.

  3. I wish that God would save me
    from the fix I’m in;
    it’s really no great tragedy,
    but cancer’s gonna win
    and its victory puts paid
    to the life I tried to cherish;
    all the dreams, the plans I’ve made
    will fade away and perish
    like a candle in the wind,
    like a moth upon the flame;
    yes, my God, for sure I’ve sinned,
    and yes, I am to blame,
    but fix this, Lord, please hear my cry
    for I am far too young to die.

  4. Great words! Love the Coldplay song, too! Problem solving can be complicated, and most times there is no quick fix! Glad we have access to the one who gives us the wisdom we need. Thanks for visiting my blog! 🙂 FMF#30
