Webster's dictionary defines a token as an outward sign or expression; something given as a guarantee.
Psalm 86:17 reads:"Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, Lord, hast holpen me, and comforted me". (KJV)
Fill your mind with One thing and Concentrate as if time is Unlimited and So will be the possibilities
I remember a weekend retreat I attended decades ago. No clocks or watches allowed. Cell phones turned off or handed over. FOCUS was key.
We were encouraged to.
participate, not anticipate.
Live in each moment.
Breathe it in deeply and let it clear out the junk.
Quit and sit Understand that In Each Time of silence a miracle is growing, waiting to be revealed
I think back to my compost bin. I've tossed garden scraps, paper towels, egg shells, dead leaves and anything else I had to decompose, in it. Once a week I turn it. I might douse a cup or two of water on it, put the lid back on and let it sit in the sun. The heat adds the last magic ingredient for decomposition to take place.
Beyond what we can see, something AMAZING happens in this DARK, QUIET place.
A place of POWER and a RESOURCE to bring forth NEW LIFE later on!
To each what seems is an Infinite amount of it is given BUT Man is deceived because Everyone is given a set amount and each will give an account for what they've done with the account they were given
Spent laughing, crying, revisiting or regretting, time keeps on ticking. These days I seem to have more of it on my hands, BUT even this is for only so long. Life will change. Responsibilities grow. When time is given, it is to be cherished and made the most of because when will we get the gift of time again?
It is the first time I look ahead to this new year
And I feel I need to choose the word "HOPE"
for the first time this year
Not because I have tons, but I need some
A whole lot of hope that there will be new
first time pleasures to balance the pains and
disappointments we are all sure to encounter
I hope this for all including myself
STOP Welcome back to my posts for Five Minute Friday. If you are new, it is the time and space where a community of writers and believers who come together to respond to a one word prompt each week. We write for five minutes, non-stop, unedited and let the creativity flow. If you are interested in joining or reading other's posts, check out www.katemotaung.com
Ok, I am over a week late on this one, but could not decide what my one word prompt should be. After letting it stew for the past week or so, I decided on the above- "Unknown" because so much of life is unknown and what are we to do? I hope this encourages someone that there is Someone who knows more than you or I do.
