5 minutes. still.

Still my heart.
Slow the beats that thunder through me.
Calm my soul with the knowledge that there is nothing that I can do.
I rest.

Still my mind.
The questions race, the possibilities expand, the not-knowing threatens.
Calm my soul with the reassurance that I am not in charge.
I rest.

Still my hands.
The motions of the day have become automatic, frantic, unceasingly demanding.
Calm my soul with the awareness that my imperfect efforts are enough.
I rest.
I rest.


  1. I love your words today.  My heart is praying this prayer with you.

  2. I'll have to read this often to help remind me to be still.

  3. Just stumbled upon here; beautiful words, and speaks very true to my frantic life, and everyone else's.

  4. Thank you! I'm glad my words resonated.
    I have to keep reminding myself, as well... it's so easy get frantic, isn't it!?
