It is Five Minute Friday time: time to let my hands dance on the keyboard or talk into my microphone for 5 minutes solid. Just write what comes out based on a single word prompt provided by our event organizer, Kate Motaung. This exercise is about more than just writing. It is also about community. Once you have written your five-minute piece, you then link up with hundreds of other bloggers on Kate’s Five Minute Friday link up page. Then as writers, we share the love and visit each others’ post and give supportive feedback.
Today’s word is STILL.
Even a disabled mom doesn’t have time to be still. I have more than most because I can’t work, but being still is a gift. We all know the verse:
Psalm 46: 10 Be still and know that I am God.
Do we know how to be still? How to slow down the mind? How to turn off the noises of the outside forces that seek to rob us of that stillness? A lot of times, I use a quiet room in the middle of the night to be still; to reflect; to dream; and to pray. Even then the noises can intrude from the barking dog to my meowing cat.
God wants us, sisters, though to be still. It is a hushed command formed in His mind. He knows we need this connection; this stillness to learn more about Him. He wants us to love Him. He wants us to experience Him.
Nature: Being Still
The pond sat quietly,
The bird perched upon a tree.
The wind gently swaying
Of waiting in a whisper
to know He is God.
