It's that time again…Five Minute Friday…I'm linking up with Kate Motaung and the flash mob of brave writers who, as Kate says, "feverishly tap out five minutes of unedited beauty and post it for all the world to see."
It's a one word writing prompt and this week the word is:
Can you hear?
Press in close or you will miss it
Push beyond the noise
Open your heart and listen... really listen
Slow down and quit rushing about in every direction
Quiet the clutter in your mind
Turn from the cacophony of voices demanding more of you
Turn off the TV...shut down the computer...turn off the music
Be still….just be
Can you hear it?
That still...small voice?
Lean in, closer still
He is whispering to you
Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me…watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you will learn to live freely and lightly.~Jesus, Lover of your soul
~Matthew 11:28-30(The Message)
Are you listening? Maybe it's time to stop all the activity, settle into the 'unforced rhythms of grace', and just breathe in His presence.
I'm joining Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday writers today.
