Five Minute Fridays: Still

Today, I am linking up with (In)Courage for Five Minute Friday. Today's topic: Still


As I sit alone in the stillness of this moment, I am suddenly aware that my mind is anything but still. Even in moments of intentional stillness, my thoughts are STILL racing.

One thought is zipping down Commitment Avenue, one has me headed up Don't Forget Boulevard, while yet another thought has already merged onto the Guilt Expressway.

Lord, How can I capture my thoughts and hand them over to you? How do I gather them all in the same place long enough to quiet them and subdue them?

How can I possibly hear you?

And yet...I do.

In the midst of this chaos, you are here, still.

As I meander through the musings of my mind, I sense your presence. My heart listens and it hears....YOU~

Through the rambling and the rubble, I hear your still small voice.

Ever faithful...strong and yet, oh so tender.

You are mine.

I am yours.



  1. how beautifully encouraging! i, too, am in a place in my life {for quite some time now} that life circumstances has made it challenging to be "still".

    "In the midst of this chaos, you are here, still."

    thanks for sharing! in Him, we find our strength, peace and joy, even "in the midst" of our chaos.

  2. So beautifully written and expressed. He's certainly given you a gift of expression through your writing. Beautiful!

  3. So thankful that He is capable of cutting through all the noise in our life. We make the decision to come and sit at His feet and he takes care of the rest!


Thank you for leaving a "heartprint" of your own.
