A Late Five Minute Friday – In the Middle


Joining with Kate at Heading Home

For five minutes of free writing.
“This is meant to be a free write, which means:
no editing, no over-thinking,
no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
Just write.”

Why do word prompts take so long to jell?
And when word jells, it seems kind of half set?
Any way, my late entry.

Today’s prompt – Middle

In the Middle of the Rod and the Staff
In the Middle of His Goodness and Mercy
In the Middle of Keeping Confidence Steadfast and Peace
In the Middle of Watching in the Wight and the Joy in the Morning
In the Middle of Trusting Him and Obeying Him

In the Middle is where I want to the Lord to find me.

In the Middle of His grace
In the Shelter of HIs arms
In the Straight and Narrow Way

EVEN IN

storm

The Middle of the Waters
The Middle of the Storms
The Middle of the Fiery Furnace
The Middle of the Lion’s Den
The Middle of the Dark and Lonely Garden

The Place of Perfect Rest in in the Middle of His Will.

Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.

Today’s thought – Perfect Peace

482012 005
Good Morning

Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.

“I do not know when I have had happier times in my soul,
than when I have been sitting at work,
with nothing before me but a candle and a white cloth,
and hearing no sound but that of my own breath,
with God in my soul and heaven in my eye . . .
I rejoice in being exactly what I am,
–a creature capable of loving God,
and who, as long as God lives,
must be happy.
I get up and look for while out of the window,
and gaze at the moon and stars,
the work of an Almighty hand.
I think of the grandeur of the universe
and then sit down
and think myself one of the happiest beings in it.”
~~A Poor Methodist Woman, 18th Century.

Is not this the purest description of contentment and peace?
‘. . .rejoice in being exactly what I am,’
To lay aside all the distractions and clamor of life
and see what is truly at the core of my being.

You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
Isaiah 26:3 AMP

Keep your mind stayed on God . . .Today
With My prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
