Five Minute Friday} Stay

Stay here a little while.
It may not be where you expected,
It may not be where you think you should be,
and it may not even be comfortable here.

I am asking you to stay here.


Right where you are.
It is here you will grow,
It is here you will learn,
but you will have to stay.

Knowing I've placed you here
by My Almighty Power
stay here in My Presence.
It is in my Presence you will see hope
for the things that are yet to come.
You don't have to understand why just yet
but one very fine and beautiful day
you will.

So please 
 stay here in My word 
and trust that
your stay here
is for My Purpose!

  1. I think as hard as it is to hear His Whisper sometimes in all our rushing and busyness, hearing Him say "Stay" is my second favorite thing! (Hearing Him say my name is the first!)

    I love how you posted this - a message from God! So powerful!

    1. Thank you Karilee. So very true "Hearing Him say my name is the first" that was beautiful!

  2. Beautiful, and oh so needed today. Yes, it rarely looks like what I expected, but trying to rush on to something else, I miss out on all he has for me here.

    1. So true Fiona. :) I'm so happy this ministered to your heart today; it did mine too! That's why I love Five Minute Friday so much; the things we reflect with God on for only 5 minutes; can sometimes blow us away. Thank you for your kind words.

  3. So beautiful, and so in line with my thoughts today. Stopped over from the Five Minute Friday. I enjoyed reading your testimony. Your children are beautiful!

  4. Greatly encouraging word here. Here from FMF and glad I clicked on you!
