5 Minute Friday


It Friday again...time for Five Minute Friday....5 minutes, no re-writes, no edits and love those that came before you..... LISTEN
Listen...He whispers to me.  Especially in the times when He can catch me off guard.

Jeremiah 33:3

The Message (MSG)
2-3 “This is God’s Message, the God who made earth, made it livable and lasting, known everywhere as God: ‘Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.’

Listen for My Voice.  Listen to what I am speaking to your heart.  I don't want to sometimes.  It requires more than I think I can take, but often times, more than I believe I can hope for.  And the pain of that feels worse than being corrected.  Listening takes all of who we are.  It's not just our ears that hear.  It's looking around and seeing Him speak in everything around us.  Every experience, every blue sky, every rainy day.  To be so close to Him that listening isn't really something we strive for anymore.  It's just who we are.  We can't turn it off or get away from it. 



  1. Sister, what were you doing up at 4:50 am? Like the look of your "red" and your thoughts. It is so encouraging to see Word from those around us. Found you at FMF. Michele@

  2. i always say i wish God would write His messages to me on the wall... but really, most often, i just need to listen better... listen more...

  3. I know what you were doing up a 4:50. Sometimes it's the only chance in a day to get unhindered time to... listen. My thoughts today are so much where yours are.

  4. Lovely...when we learn to listen to Him...we simply can't not listen. Beautiful thoughts this morning.

  5. Dear Kimberly
    Oh, once we have heard our God's voice and experienced His presence, nothing else we can think or dream of, can satisfy our hearts, even when we stand corrected!
    Much love

  6. One ear in life an one ear to the Lord...that is how I try to live. I don't want to miss a thing that He tries to teach me. It is not always possible but it is a goal of mine in living intentionally. Such depth to your words! Thank you! Love, Rachael @ Inking the Heart

  7. One ear in life and one ear to the Lord. That is how I try to live intentionally for the Lord. It is not always done but I don't want to miss anything the Lord has to say to me. There is so much depth to your words! Thank you. Love, Rachael @ Inking the Heart

  8. Thank you all for the sweet words! I am an early does seem to be the way I can get things done around here and I love having that time to not feel rushed and be able to listen ;)

  10. Isn't it incredible how when we stop and truly listen that we can not only hear but see so much of what He does and says? Beautiful reminders today...blessings and happy weekend to you, sweet friend! :)
