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.”
ushers in a longing.
A longing for stillness,
not in the world outside,
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.”
A longing in my soul.
A need met as I turn to and wait patiently for Him.
