Five Minute Friday (REST)

It's FRIDAY!!  Join in if you will

    1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
    2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
    3. Go a little overboard encouraging the writer who linked up before you.


The subject:  REST

Today is the third day we have risen before sunrise to a dark quiet house.

And even though my eyes are stinging and my body is tired, my soul finds REST.

I REST in each red word that my eyes strain to read.

"Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it"  

I let it penetrate deep as we hold hands and come before our Lord in prayer, together, seeking Him in the dawn.

We decided to wake early and ask Him what His will is for our lives.

Coffee drips as His Holy Spirit filters these words as they soak deep.

And I REST-assured in His promise to find life in Him when I surrender all of my life...

It is so hard to get up extra early- my husband and I keep "trying" to do this. You've encouraged me to try again. And, I love your blog title.

I am not a morning person, but I've learned to become one for this exact reason. There is so much rest to be found there before the crazy starts!

Coffee and Jesus. There is no better combination. Amen. Praying you are finding wisdom as you seek Him out early in the morning. Thanks for your words today.

It's always so good when we stop for a moment to reflect on His promises, His goodness. And with Coffee it's even better!

I am not a morning person, but this post reminds me why I try to be more of one. Thanks!
