Wait – Five Minute Friday

ISAIAH -41-30

I’m happy to be linking up to Five Minute Friday.

Five minutes to write on the word: Welcome.

Write–don’t edit–just 5 minutes to be in the moment–


But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
    They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
    they walk and don’t lag behind.

Isaiah 40:31



The month of January, this year of 2015, is a month and year where I have placed & prioritized stillness, quiet, meditation & waiting, into my day.

I realized I am responsible for my own spirit, and that we are to take inventory of how our spirits are doing, for what flows out of our spirit is what flows– into our day, into life.

The time I found to wait & meditate had to be early morning, for it is the only time my home is still enough for me to still.

I have found that waiting in the early dawn when the day is just beginning, is just the beginning.

I’ve learned, as the verse says above, that waiting is often movement…a doing.

I still to trust, I trust then act.

I still to find strength, to run and not grow weary.

I wait so that I may walk and not get stuck or lag behind.

I have yet to feel a consistency of soaring with eagles, as these moments are still too few and far between, yet my spirit longs for this Heaven on earth, this promised Kingdom come.

I hold on to this promise, this hope of His Kingdom come, and rest.

His precious will be done.

When all else fails, it is You who remains.

My Cornerstone, firm through the fiercest drought and storm


Your opinion of me never changes.

Your grace is lavished.


You have given me every spiritual blessing needed.

You have given and will give all I need to be all you have said I am.


Precious. Princess. Bought. Chosen. Grafted. Adopted.


I chew on this truth, sitting in this place–Your house.


The elements are passed, bread broken.

I hesitate to chew, for when I do, I’m reminded of how you broke.


You know what it is to break.

You know rejection, a broken heart.


Your body splintered

Blood poured out, God’s wrath satisfied


I drink, a communion

Remembering what it took to establish this union.


Father, we are one.

Father, make us one

I cry out …make us one.


Lord! Lord! Hear my cry.


Let me feel the release

A precious blood transaction


I reject the lies

Sins grip is loose, an easy slipping through fingers

I am free to let go, grip released


Darkness goes, light comes

I enter the Light room


Yes, I am free, released but held

In Your Hand, never to be plucked out


A God-hand hammock for my heart,

Heart healed with your words, “It is Finished.”


Here I rest, help me find rest

Relieved, Redeemed. Renewed.


You wrap me up

Cacooned in light

I hear your whispers of truth


I am yours, you are mine. We are one.


I remain until released– that day you call me home.

You command my destiny, from my first cry to my last breath.


I will remain.

Lord, help me to remain.

The Whispers I Hear

A Whispered Mantra. You are loved.

 {Necklace With Whispered Mantra}

Participating in  5 Minute Fridays. 5 minutes to write about one word. Unedited.

This weeks word: Whisper


He whispers to me today; I lean in to listen.

I have been with you, Amy.

I am currently with you, I have gone before you, and I will be with you in this next season.  I will never leave you or forsake you.

I see you feel weak, this is prime time for me to make you strong.  You feel weak, but did you know that in me you can move mountains?  I am doing more inner work in you.  Just you wait! You will see and rejoice in me.

I have called you out of darkness into marvelous light. Shine! Remember the moment we had long ago when I gave you this word? It was a branding of sorts. Keep shining.

You are not your own. You have been bought with a price. You are mine. You belong. I see you. I get you. I know you, I call you child. You are a NEW creation.  The old has passed.  Look, Amy!  The new has come.  You. Have. Been. Made. New. Remember the hashtag?  Live in this reality.  #LivingNew

Stay close to me.  Abide.  I am safe. My grace and kindness toward you is immeasurable. My love will never run out. I am your hiding place; I will preserve you from trouble; I will surround you with words of truth and deliverance.
Do you hear, my child?  These are My whispered words to you. Listen up. Snuggle in. I’ve got you.  I’ve got it all.

 I respond. “You are a hiding place for me you preserve me from trouble.” (‭Psalm‬ ‭32‬:‭7‬ ESV)
