And so – we write for five minutes, our words tumbling out – no editing, no polishing – just flat out on a one word prompt! We gather all our beautiful thoughts here in our Five Minute Friday community and then love on each other as only we can do! Click here to learn all about it.

Home is where the Five Minute Friday community gathers so please join us at Kate Motaung’s for our Friday fun!



Life is about waiting. We are in constant motion but in the motion is the “wait”. The times we are unsure of our next steps, when our jobs are uncertain, when retirement is around the corner. We are waiting for that next thing, next step, next possibility.

Isaiah 40-31

But have you ever thought that the waiting is a call to restore, renew and refresh? A time to step back and take a break- a real break. God calls us to be still in our waiting, to lean on Him, to rest in His promises. In this slowing down, He asks us to take a break from pushing so hard and from constantly pursuing the answer to our questions and instead allow Him to lead the way.

but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

My life is in a period of waiting. Next steps are on the horizon but the the way is fuzzy as if covered in fog. I am called to wait-wait  on the Lord and His plan. I am called to let His strength renew and restore.

[Tweet “In the waiting, we break from normal and allow God to be our strength.”]

Let’s allow God to enter our waiting and fill the break from normal with His peace and strength.

Blessings friends!
