In place of the usual offerings here, I am starting a new venture for me as I link up for the first time with Five Minute Friday.
This is a real challenge of grit and courage as I am a perfectionist (working on that one) who normally writes and writes, edits and edits…writes… until I am happy with something and ready to publish it.
Even then, it goes our with heart-in-mouth concern and angst, heavily dosed with prayer.
Now, I have to write for 5 minutes flat on the subject of ‘Rest’ – no editing, no over-thinking, no backtracking. Deep breath..you can do this..here goes..start the clock..
In a life constrained by chronic sickness it may seem that resting is all I do.
With His Spirit hovering within and without me I find my thoughts calmed and stilled.
Other concerns fade and pale into insignificance for those few moments of connection.
Our souls need the restful watering of His love and grace that He desires to pour upon us.
The world’s cacophony, noise and chaos only serve to drain us of peace and rest.
You won’t regret finding an oasis of calm in the midst of busyness…
Do hop over and join in the fun!’
