Welcome to another week of Five Minute Friday — an online community where bloggers who mostly don’t even dare to call themselves writers put their brave on week after week and bring the internet alive with their beautiful words.
It’s a place where we write free and deep and wide, where we let it all spill onto the screen in all its messy, jumbled up glory. It’s a place to link arms with others, to lift them up, to shine a light, to give hope. These two sentences are from Kate Motaung web space where we aspiring writers post. I completed her challenge in October but have not participated since October 31. Here is to the link to my series, http://www.diana2rockwell.com/31-days-of-blessings.
The word is still \. Here is the word to write for five minutes, no correcting just free writing.
Be Still and know that I am God is found in Psalm 46. In my prayer journal there is a section for listening. Listening for God’s voice is hard for me. I do not know if it is because I have trouble sitting still or because I am unable to shut off my thoughts. So I open my bible and I open my journal and with my purple pen I write what I hear his voice in His Word. It is really a feeling, not an audible voice. There is peace that comes over me. I have that feeling of stillness in the early hours of the morning, and the late hours of the night. I have the feeling of stillness when I see the ocean and the majesty of the waves. I have the feeling of still when I see a rainbow. I have the feeling of stillness when I hear the raindrops on the roof. When I am still, I hear his voice say, “Diana I Love you.”
Father God thank you that in the still of the night you are there. In the early hours of the morning you are there. You whisper to me, You are my beloved and I am yours.
