Five Minute Friday: Quiet

Joining Kate Motaung and other members of the encouraging and courageous Five Minute Friday Community for this week’s Five Minute Friday. The prompt is “Quiet.”

Quiet
This word,
this prompt,
ushers in a longing.

A longing for stillness,
not in the world outside,
but within.
In those places where worry hides,
where anxiety resides,
where concerns about the future,
 have made a comfortable place for themselves.

I long for the stillness which only He can give.
And so even now
I reach for Him in prayer
“Abba, help me be still,
as You commanded me
in Psalm 46.”

“Be still and know, that I am God.
I will be exalted in the heavens.
I will be exalted to the ends of the earth.
Be still and know that I am God.

That thing that created unrest within?
I am God over that.
I will show Myself strong on your behalf,
if only you will be quiet and wait patiently for My salvation.”

Quiet.
A longing in my soul.
A need met as I turn to and wait patiently for Him.
