life and faith

Welcome to my fifth Five Minute Friday foray. 

By the way, did I mention that I just love littering my words with alliteration?

Here we write on a given topic for 5 minutes only, no editing, no over-thinking, no backtracking, just whatever comes straight from the heart.

Start..


Here






“This moment is different from any before it. This moment is different, it’s now” ~ Incredible String Band


Here. Now. Present in the moment.
Here. In Your presence. Only finding You when we pause.
Stop our mind’s constant chatter.
Trust You now, not just when life is easy.
For our see-saw emotions are unreliable.
We feel lost to You.
But You never move away. 
You are continually present.
Ready. Waiting. Listening. 
Available.
If…we stop the mind wandering,
still the soul, be quiet before You,
then…This Moment..here, now, becomes holy.
We surrender and hear You speaking
into the silent chambers of our spirit.
A voice is heard; Your love ever present, 
Your grace new every day; Your peace always surrounding us
if…we remember to seek and pursue it.
Meet me here, Lord, in this short span of time;
help me pay attention, help me find You.
Invade This Moment with Your love.
Help, heal, restore, renew, refresh
this dry and thirsty soul.
I am waiting.
I am here.
I am ready
for Your outpouring.
I receive You. Here. Now.
Thank you.
Amen.
Stop.
