With full apologies to all English teachers, I am coming to learn that “when” is a action word.
When requires my participation.
“God saved you by his grace when you believed.” (Ephesians 2:8)
“When you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” (Jeremiah 29:13 NLT)
“When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” (1 Corinthians 13:11 NLT)
Like the Psalmist, I cry, “When, Lord?”
Perhaps He will when I do.
It’s not enough to “say when.”
I have to “do” when. When is a verb.
“When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.“
Linking with the #fmfparty and Five-Minute Friday. Even though sometimes I write and post on the weekly prompt on other days, too.
