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 comes fast,

Our days blur like the landscape rushing past the windows of a speeding car,

The minutes tick off so quickly we can barely mark their passing,

And then…

God sends His spirit just when we need Him!

In one sweet breath of life-giving air, we are filled with renewal and restoration to ease our weary souls when life is consuming and full of craziness.

[Tweet “Step into the rhythm of life measured by breathing in God and breathing out His praise!”]

Life takes on a steady rhythm of breathing in and breathing out because God slowed down the frantic and replaced it with His stillness. We pause to remember that living overwhelmed is living underwhelmed and we know that we crave a fullness that only comes when God is given the space to enter our unsteadiness and fill us with His peace. We feel the blessing of love that surpasses all of the fast-paced living and know we are exactly where we need to be. We empty out the the frenzy and let the whispers of God’s strength take over our days. We rejoice when God comes and allows a slowing down that is His treasured gift just for us. We step into the rhythm of a life measured by breathing in God and breathing out His praise.

When God comes…  we are blessed, revived, refreshed and renewed! Our gift is one day, one minute, one tick led by His Hand and His rhythm.


but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. 
Isaiah 40:31

Amen for His daily blessings and gift of renewal!
