The prompt this week for Five Minute Friday is “Quiet.” Here goes:
The first thing that comes to mind when I see this word is that I’ve always been considered a quiet person. But that never really bothered me because I have learned that being quiet has its possibilities. For one, you are an observer so you get to learn a lot about life and life’s lessons from other people without necessarily having to make the same mistakes yourself. For another you are a listener so you get to hear some pretty cool stories and gain some neat insight into those loved ones around you. So quiet, here I come!
Another thing that was unrelated but I still wanted to share was that the Hillsong United song, None but Jesus, popped into my head as well. The lyrics go like this:
“In the quiet, in the stillness
I know that you are God
In the secret of your presence
I know there I am restored
When you call I won’t refuse
Each new day, again I’ll choose
There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise”
So good to remember and so relevant for me as a “quiet” person. For most importantly, as this song suggests, it is there in the quiet that I meet Jesus!
