Joining the writers of Five Minute Friday over at Kate’s today.
One word. Five minutes. 1-2-3 go:
Anyone who knows me knows I love being near the water. I’ve longed for a place on a body of water, a pond, an ocean, a lake…somewhere with water, but the Lord has not opened that door yet for me. I love the STILLness of the water – the calm that it offers my soul.
The Psalmist talked about it when he wrote, “God leads me beside the still waters.” David found solace there. So do I.
I love when the still water is ruffled by the rings that a flat rock makes as you skip it across the surface…one skip – two skips – three….all the way to six at times and the still is broken by gentle wakes.
I listen better when I’m still. I hear His tender whispers.
So seldom in the busy world do we find ourselves still – for me, that place will always be…
near still water…
