He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

Five Minute Friday - Still Small Voice


I cry out to the Lord for help

For the courage to carry on

To not give up

Depend upon the Holy Spirit within me


Filter all that I do and say

Through the grid of God’s






When I feel I can’t go on

Or take another step

Strengthen me

Give me courage


When I don’t know what to say

Help me to remember

It’s okay to say nothing

Ask my Heavenly Father for wisdom


Let my words reflect the Lord

May the words I speak into broken lives bring








Light the path before me

Guide each step

Incline my ear so that I may hear

And listen closely to Your still small voice

It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.
