Today’s five minute friday word is “just”.
When I saw today’s word, the first thing that came to mind was “just breathe”.
Many of you know that I struggle with anxiety since Rebekah’s accident. The dark fears and “what ifs” are my constant companions.
The only way I know to combat this thinking is to live right in this moment. To just be.
Just be happy that the sun is shining. Just be blessed to feel my little one’s arms around my neck. Just be at ease, at this moment, as my four healthy boys are asleep in their beds.
Psalm 46:10 says “Be still and know that I am God”
Could “be still” mean to just quietly be? To allow yourself this moment to simply breathe?
Sometimes in order to “just be” we need to accept our season of life. We need to take a step back and see it for what it is.
That is my hope for you today. That where ever you are, whatever you are struggling with, that you take a moment to “just be” and allow God to bring you peace right here at this moment.
Sometimes we need to embrace our moment as well as “just be”. These posts on the concept of embrace might interest you.
