moment: taking time to pause and be refreshed

As you take a moment or two to read these words, I’d like to remind you of the benefits of taking regular, small pockets of time out of your day to slow and nourish your soul. Such times are vital for obtaining inner rest and peace.

Because we all need space to pause. Room to be and breathe. Time to slow down in a world that never stops. I’m offering just that for you today. Just a moment or two to read something which will help you to reconnect with the inmost part of yourself.

In the short prayer whisper below, God spoke His words of wisdom to me. I’m sharing them because we could all use a reminder to pause and pray. Our days and our bodies function better when we make space to still, listen and hear from God. May these few words bless and encourage your heart today, my friend.


Prayer Whisper: Being in the moment

“Slow down. Slow down. Your mind is racing ahead to all the potential possibilities, worries and concerns of the day before you. Only one thing is needful right now. Relax in My Presence, My Rest, My Peace and calm.

Let Me shine My Love-Light upon you, bringing greater clarity of thinking as it soothes your fretful heart. Time spent in this way will reap huge benefits for body and soul.

It is only in the silent stilling of your soul that you are able to hear My voice clearly. There are too many things that distract and fight for your attention.

Listen. Listen to Me that your soul might live. Humble yourself before Me. I will pour My wisdom into receptive hearts.

There is fullness of Joy in My Presence. You need never leave the sacred place empty. Here is meeting place between heaven and earth. Here is Holy ground. You touch the eternal in the temporal.

Respect this moment. Make time to commune with Me. I will show you the things you need to do. I will provide everything necessary for this day. And I will fill you with My Spirit. Which will enable you to be a shining light for others.”

  1. Such beautiful moments to pause and be with the Lord. Thank you for sharing these, Joy. I was reminded of the Scripture song we used to sing, “Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord…and He shall lift you up…” It is humbling to bow ourselves before Him, putting aside all of our own agendas. But that is when He lifts us up into His presence. I needed these moments to pause and put everything else aside, today. Blessings, love and hugs Dear Friend! xoxo

    1. Bettie, I’m so pleased it was a blessing to you! After several days of emotional turmoil I definitely needed to press pause and spend quality time with the Lord. When we do just that we always come away with a renewed perspective, as well as soul refreshment and rest. Blessings, love and hugs to you too, dear friend! xoxo 💜

  2. I read in your comment to Bettie that you had several days of emotional turmoil, Joy. I’m so sorry. Yes, it definitely helps to pause and rest in His Presence and Peace. I’m not on other social media anymore at this time, so it’s wonderful that you come to your site once in a while and share some refreshments. 🙂 Love and hugs to you!

    1. Yes, it has been quite harrowing and Ieft me feeling distinctly out of sorts. But I am beginning to feel brighter today, praise God! I’m grateful you are enjoying the shorter, sparser posts this month. I hope to write more frequently once October is over, health permitting, of course. Did you receive my recent newsletter? They’re like mini blog posts in themselves! 😏 Love and hugs to you too, Trudy! I’m looking forward to reading your post before the week is out. xo 💜

        1. Thank you, Trudy! Each small improvement helps. I’m sorry about the gone astray newsletter. I’ve investigated and just sent you an email about it. Hope it reaches you as it should. Sometimes these things get stuck in a spam folder by mistake. Could be worth checking there. xo 😍

Your words matter. I'd love to hear from you.
