5-Minute Breather

Minutes matter.
It is in my nature to eyeball grocery store checkout lanes to calculate the fastest one . . . because minutes matter to me.
Time matters to God.
Time, specifically – time set apart to rest, is the first thing God called holy.

 And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested … Genesis 2:3

It is in His nature to eyeball my hurry, my distraction, my overload and invite me to a quiet five with Him.
When I need to “Take 5,” I usually head outside, but that is not always possible.
I recently found a new tool, thanks to Alan and Gem Fadling, the founders of Unhurried Living.
Could you use a quiet five right now or sometime today?
Hit pause from the whirlwind and hit play for a quiet, reflective 5-minutes with Jesus called S-L-O-W.
Minutes matter.
They really do.

We are a group of passionate people who gather around the 4-word mission statement, “Run Hard. Rest Well.”

  • It’s a journey into the heart of God. It comes our way through an on-going exploration of four biblical rhythms that revive, replenish and restore: Sabbath Keeping, Sleep (and other simple stress-reducers), Stillness—personal retreat, and Solitude—personal retreat.
  • It’s an expedition that challenges us at every turn. It convicts us in deep, tender places. It alters our priorities and plans. It’s not for the faint of heart.
  • It’s adventure at its best – as we learn to run our race in a power not our own.

  1. I also found a website called Abide. They have structured meditations and you can just listen to music play. I am so bad!!! Even when I listen to things, I am often doing something else. I really need to….not slow….but stop. Stop doing multiple things when I really need to concentrate on God. How can I hear, if I don’t listen? God, forgive me. Help me stop all the things around me and focus on You alone! I can’t do it on my own. Thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit to help me.
