You Meet Me Here

12 Apr
Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and friends for Five Minute Friday.
This is where we come together writing for 5 minutes without editing or overthinking.
I love this community.

Check out what everyone’s is sharing on the word HERE here.

Five Minute Friday

Oh how I love this place.
This time of the evening when everyone is tucked into bed and the house is quiet.
And You meet me here.
After all that goes on in the day, I come to You with everything.
Some days the only thing I can do is sit and absorb the silence.
Other days I come with prayers and can’t stop the flow of words.
Prayers that I lift up to You.
Knowing that You hear each one even when I can’t put them into words.
I know that I come to this place in the morning, 
but I long for these moments in the evening as well.
I just can’t end the day any other way.
I come to You.
Sometimes so full of joy and sometimes broken.
But I know that You want me here no matter how I come.
It’s overwhelming to think that You desire this time with me even more than I do.
This place is ours. Yours and mine.
Before I lay my head down, You speak to my heart.
You tell me You love me.
And there is peace.
Goodnight, Abba.

It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning,
your faithfulness in the evening.
Psalm 92:2

How can I pray for you today, friend?

Blessings,

    This is beautiful. You are so right, it is often in the still quiet of the evening that we find our minute to spend with Him. And I love your picture with the verse-absolutely beautiful. Lovely writing, lady!

    So glad to connect again tonight, friend. My heart is full. I love that you have that quiet tucked away moment before sleep comes between you and God. I had a picture as I was reading of Him leaning over and tucking you in. Beautiful. Love you.

    I appreciated the whole post, but I especially appreciated the verse from Psalms that you chose for the beginning. The Psalms are important to me right now, I'm finding that they are informing my prayers. I'm always glad when I stop by your blog.

    I love the Scripture in your image. I couldn't help but smile. And yes, it is so good that we can come before our Abba Father and know He hears our hearts even when we cannot speak.Blessings and love,Debbie

    This is a beautiful (and oh-so-accurate of my own, too!) picture of how days end with our Abba can be. You pour out your heart and we get to peek in and see glimpses of ourselves in your writing. I so enjoyed your post this morning!!

    Wendy – what beautiful expression of love for the Father. That you love and trust Him with everything — the good the bad, the helpful and the hurtful. I pray that I can come to Him each day with that same open heart and hands. Thank you for sharing here on your blog but also for always being so welcoming in the #FMFParty.
