REST – Five Minute Friday

The following is from http://lisajobaker.com/five-minute-friday/ :

So now on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just writewithout worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes.

Your words. This shared feast.

It’s easy to join in, just:

  1. Check what the prompt is on my blog.
  2. Write a post in only five minutes on that topic on your blog.
  3. Link over here and invite friends to join in.
  4. Select the permalink to your post {so not your blog url http://www.lisajobaker.com but your post url http://www.lisajobaker.com/2012/07/five-minute-friday-2/ }
  5. Using the linky tool at the bottom of my Five Minute Friday post enter your link.
  6. Your post will show up in our Five Minute Friday linky.
  7. Be sure and encourage the person who linked up before you!

Our most important requirement for participation: There’s really only one absolute, no ifs, ands or buts about it Five Minute Friday rule: you must visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community. (end)

 

So the timer was set for five minutes and this is what I wrote:

Where do I find rest?  I find rest in peace, quiet, calm, sleep, the Lord, in the stillness, in the beauty of the earth around me.

God created me to work hard but to also rest; I am not meant to toil hard 24/7; that is not life…   God wants me to have a fulfilled and abundant life from HIM.  I must take the time to rest, stop, be still in Him to be filled with His living water and be refreshed and filled to overflow His love, grace, peace, mercy.  To stop and give thanks for all He has provided and for His perfect timing.  To rest to be able to know His will to be able to say: here I am Lord, send me, use me.  to have an abundant fulfilled life

STOP; and that’s where the timer went off………..
