Five Minute Friday: Rhythm

Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker and hundreds of others. We write for five minutes. All on the same prompt. No extreme editing. No worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.Unscripted. Unedited. Real.


The rhythm of our life right now is hurry up and wait...

My kids despise this idea, but as I recall, so did I as a child -
The kids are all ready for church, but mom is still doing her make-up.
They want a snack, but we just had lunch 20 minutes ago.
Little one has to go potty, but there are 10 ladies already in line at the ballgame.

Those moments seem like an eternity for the kids. For me, sometimes waiting on God feels like forever. Waiting for a new job for my husband. Waiting for a the right place to live. Waiting for...

Praise God, He provides a new rhythm when I get ants in my pants...Find peace in Me, my child, wait for Me, it will be worth it!



  1. Found you at 5MF.... So glad we can find God's peace during the 'hurry up and wait' seasons :)

  2. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday.

    Yes, waiting is difficult.

    I love the T time logo!

  3. Waiting can be a hard rhythm...but you're right. He'll bring that peace, and it will be worth it! Blessings and happy Friday to you! :)

  4. Ha! I get ants in my pants too so I totally relate. Thanks for reminding me to be in step with His rhythm. Well done.

  5. I couldn't agree more with Mel, and your children - waiting is a difficult rhythm! Praise God for those new rhythms just when you need them!
