Here {Five Minute Friday}

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to 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..




Here...


Here I sit in the quiet of this space I call my own.  

I hear the clock tick. I hear the birds outside.  I hear the dog breathing softly beside me... 

I  wonder what the day holds.  Oh I have plans, but HE always has better plans...


"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."   Jer. 29:11 NIV


I prefer HIS plans.  They may not be easy, or what I "thought" was best, but they are HIS.


I don't always take the time to listen, to hear those plans.


But HERE I sit...listening.  Waiting.  


Here...

So true. The best place to be is HERE. When that is where He wants you to be. Have a blessed day!

That is a verse I mediate on often. Waiting here, for His plans - such a great place {and hard place!} to be!

Hello, I got link to your post through #FiveMinuteFriday. I have not clue what God is doing with and in my family and I'm honestly frightened. This post was exactly what I needed to be encouraged by the Lord. Thank you for incorporating scripture into your post! I loved it!

I got linked to your site through #FiveMinuteFriday. Thank you for your encouraging post. I totally needed to be reminded that God knows what is best even when I don't understand and am frightened. Thank you for incorporating scripture!

I love that bible verse! And I read it in my own language. So great all over the world there are women who trust in Gods plans.
