Five Minute Friday — Rest

We write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

We write bold and beautiful and free. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just write or not.

Today’s prompt  —  Rest


Where is the rest?

You know, the part that is left

that part that somehow always seems missing

the illusive part

the shy part

the part where you must be quiet before it will come

busyness, loud noises, strife, contention, sharp words scare it away

but if you find a place that is still, even if it is only inside you

and you wait

and you listen

you will find rest for your soul.

Job 34:29  When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble?. . .

A portion of  Grandma Crain’s garden.

This wasn’t what I was thinking of when I started, but how many times when I just open up, my Father is there to again bring rest and assurance that He has all things under control.

  2. Absolutely!!!

    Brings to remembrance: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matt. 11:28

    Oh, if we could just keep that in the forefront of our minds, right?

    Take care, dear one, and may REST be illusive no more.
