Five Minute Friday: Stay

Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and others for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours.

Stay here with Me.

Breathe in every moment.  Do you feel My presence in the wind?

Take My hand and let’s walk together, side by side.  Do you see the light breaking through?

Come, stay with Me, and leave your cares and worries behind.

Stay with Me.  I promise that I will never  leave you.

Walk with Me.  I promise to lead you safely along the path.

Stand Still.  I promise to guard you and protect you.

Will you come and sit?  Will you come and stay a while?

I long to share My heart with you.

Stay in this moment, where it’s just you and Me. 

Five Minute Friday



Seeking beauty in the ordinary and embracing life to the fullest. Thank you for stopping by and come again soon!

    As usual… beautiful! It brought me back to a season (YEARS ago!) of 2 a.m. feedings and sleep-deprived days when the Lord would wake me up and ask me to just come and “Be with Him”. Those quiet midnight moments spent simply sitting with Him shaped me… while I was shaping her! LOVED this!!!
