Quiet – Five-Minute Fridays
I am silently laughing to myself. A couple of minutes ago I finished spending my “quiet time” with our Lord. A very good quiet time.
YES – I sat still. I didn’t move. I let all thoughts leave my mind except the word “Jesus”. An unbelievable peace came over me.
When I first sat down this morning I had picked up a new book called Refresh by Ron Hughes. He also has a free workbook to go with Refresh. I read through the second chapter called “Be Quiet”. No kidding – that is the chapter I studied this morning.
Ron’s book has 19 ways to boost your spiritual life. If every chapter has the result of this morning I will be ecstatic.
I feel a peace and calmness that I haven’t reached for a while.
I used to take time to SIT STILL. But, lately I have been reading, studying, and thinking. Praying, petitioning. An active brain. This is what Ron calls “mental racket”. Well my brain has played a rock concert.
Instead, today, I read about how to “quieten the clamouring voices” in my mind.
Then I opened my computer – and voila… there is Lisa-Jo’s word for this Friday. QUIET. Could God be telling me it any stronger?
I must take that time – to quieten my thoughts before God.
Time’s up – but before I leave here is an acronym that came to me this morning.
P – Put
E – Everything
A – Aside
C – Calm
E – Ensues
Have a wonderful day! linking in to Lisa-Jo’s Five-Minute Fridays.
