Every Friday, Lisa Jo Baker hosts a blog link up called Five Minute Fridays (FMF). She provides a word prompt and then participants are to set their timers for five minutes and write until the timer goes off. I am so thankful that I found Five Minute Fridays! FMF gives me an opportunity to just “freestyle”! Many of you have told me that you really enjoy reading the FMF posts! The word for today is QUIET. Happy Friday Divas and here goes:
If you have ever been to one of our classes, you know our class is anything but QUIET. Women are hootin’ and hollerin’ and our music blares for the majority of class with the exception of the cool down.
The older I get, the more I realize I need QUIET to think clearly. The music in class is so loud and things are moving so quickly, an hour has gone by before you know it and whatever was bothering you, didn’t even cross your mind. Perhaps it is just me, but the noisiness of class seems to QUIET the clamoring issues of my day.
Although loudness can QUIET life drama for a moment, we often need to get QUIET so that we can see what God is doing and then do what HEwants us to do. We get so wound up from all the craziness of the day, it is hard to QUIET our minds. A little power salsa, the new crazy merengue and a song full of squats are just what the doctor ordered to help us relax so we can really get QUIET.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
