Five Minute Friday: Stay


Today I am linking up with Lisa-Jo's Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
OK, are you ready? Won’t you please give me your best five minutes on: STAY


When I want to run you tell me to stay.


When my feelings get hurt I am ready to flee, to self protect.

It is so easy to walk away but you tell me to stay faithful. When I want to give up you are there to whisper in my ear that you are moving I just don’t see it yet.

The walls you have built to self protect are not working. Trust in me to be your defense. I am your protector, your provider, Trust Me.

Stay in my presence. Stay your eyes on me and my word.  Don’t give up, don’t walk away. I have so much in store for those who are steadfast in what I have called.

It may hurt but I will heal, I will redeem.

Stay in my presence.  Stay in my will. I have a plan for you, a purpose that driven by my love for you… if only you will stay.


Reminds me of my favorite songs by Jimmy Needham. It's call STAY on the album Clear the Stage.
