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!
I love the scripture below. The words speak to me of a safe place, a holy place and one that will bring us much peace.
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock. Psalm 27:4-5
I have been spending a lot of time recently seeking God in the quiet. I am called to make a space for God to enter in. The process is hard and takes practice. Because seeking is not always finding. We have to intentionally work toward creating a quiet nook in our lives. When we seek stillness and invite God to join us, we create a beautiful haven for both of us.
[Tweet “When we seek stillness and invite God to join us, we create a beautiful haven for both of us.”]
Silence is a place of rest and surrender. Until are minds are emptied of the mess that we hold onto, the quiet we crave is not present. God is the dwelling we seek. All the days of our lives, we should seek Him first.
How do you seek to dwell with God in your life? Do you create a space that is just for Him?
I am learning the hard way that until I completely surrender my agenda for God’s, I will not be able to fully dwell in Him and His plan for me. Turn away from the noise and choose quiet stillness with God today. You will be so glad you did!
Thank you to the beautiful community at #fmfparty who always encourages me and makes me feel so welcome. You all are the best!
