Five Minute Friday: Quiet


1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..



Last week was my very first time to link up with Lisa-Jo  for Five Minute Friday, and I am so glad that I did! Not only was the free writing surprisingly liberating, but I was able to connect and engage with some rather remarkable sisters in Christ. And for all of my Five Minute Friday friends, I host a link up every Thursday called {faith} filled life. We'd love to have you!

Okay- coffee consumed. Timer set. And....

GO!


Quiet. Peace. The secret- hidden place.

It is the place I long for each morning.

As the stillness settles over the house, I grab my cup of coffee, Bible, journal and pen and set out to meet Him. I can still hear the subtle sounds of heavy breathing coming from the bedrooms where my boys sleep. The sound soothes me as I nestle into my favorite spot on the couch. A gentle lullaby to a Mother's ear that could easily lull me back to sleep... only... I'm meeting Someone. And He is found in this secret, quiet, still place of my heart- so I mustn't rush this, because I long to hear from Him this morning.

Jesus.

Oh, how my heart leaps for joy at the sound of His voice! It still amazes me that the God of the universe would choose to meet with me. That He would desire a relationship with me. Amazing love! Amazing grace!

STOP.

  1. "I'm meeting someone...", are such beautiful words to read. Oh, how I long for that same interaction in the quiet moments, too. I pray your time was fruitful and refreshing!

  2. Megan,
    I loved this! I think I heard Jesus' footsteps as He walked, in time with your boys' sleepy breaths, into the room to sit beside you on the couch.
    Blessed that you've started joining us here on Fridays.
    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Felecia
