And so – we write for five minutes, our words tumbling out – no editing, no polishing – just flat out on a one word prompt! We gather all our beautiful thoughts here in our Five Minute Friday community and then love on each other as only we can do! Click here to learn all about it.
Home is where the Five Minute Friday community gathers so please join us at Kate Motaung’s for our Friday fun!
I am a quiet girl! I treasure quiet moments, soft voices and gentle conversations. I have shied away from loud, boisterous activities most of my life, but have been known at times to be that loud, boisterous person. Mostly, it is the quiet times of my life that I have heard the whispers of truth. There have never been bright lights and clanging gongs to mark the important moments of life.
Truths float in like a gentle breeze through my windows and swirl around until I pause and listen carefully. The time seems to stand still until I intentionally grab hold of the whispers that are meant just for me. These whisper moments – this fluttering of words – these God truths – come in the quiet parts of my day. I might miss what God wishes to share if I let the busy overtake the slowing down quiet that God loves to share with me.
In the whisper moments God tells me He loves me!
He shows me I am beautiful!
He tells me I am His and who I am is a reflection of Him.
He reminds me that His grace is available everyday.
He whispers that in my times of fear, He will provide courage.
He assures me that He is all I need.
It is in the whisper moments of life that I learn that I am worthy to be called child of God. It is in pausing and perfect stillness that God speaks clearly into my heart and directs me into the future with Him. It is these whispers that give me the strength to know God’s glory and share it with others.
Pass along the whispers – speak into someone’s heart today and share God’s promises!
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake. Psalm 23: 1-3
May God’s whispers reach your heart, make a home and grow into beautiful truths that you may share with others.
