Five Minute Friday – What’s YOUR address?
Today, I pause for Five Minutes to write and reflect…the nice thing for you as a reader is that my five minutes of writing is probably less than a minute of reading. I hope that these moments can encourage, entertain, or just allow you to get to know me better. Join in if you like….connect with Kate Motaung to find out more. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
This week’s Prompt: DWELL
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalm 91:1
When I was younger, my pastor would spend the first weeks of each year in a different Psalm that coincided with the year. (Psalm 91 was the series of sermons for 1991). I will never forget the premise that he had that year was “What is your address?” He used Psalm 91:1 as the central verse to remind us to set up our permanent dwelling abiding in the shelter and shadow of God.
It is there that we find
Protection from evil
It is there that we escape
Fear of man
Lack of resources
As I think about my physical address and the home that I return to each day, I am reassured of the comfort it affords and how much more I want to make a DAILY CHOICE to seek my permanent emotional and mental DWELLing in the “Shelter of the Most High” and the “Shadow of the Almighty.” What a greater comfort and peace awaits for me there!
