Five Minute Friday – Deep

Deep calls to deep,
and my soul finds no resting place but Him.

Estelle White

I’m joining in with a group of writers for Five Minute Friday where we’re given a prompt (this week it’s DEEP) and write for five minutes about it.

Deep calls to deep.

There is a restlessness and a stirring. I return to stillness, where I hear the loudest.

It is not about doing, it isn’t even about being. It is about seeking, and switching my mindset from gratitude for a multitude of gifts, to adoration of the Giver of them.

It’s about sitting still and spending time.

It’s about leaning in and listening.

It’s about love. More than anything, it’s about love.

And in this season where it’s about to get loud, we set an intention to be quiet, to cease striving and know—to go deep.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I’m so grateful to have stopped here this morning. I felt pulled to Advent in October, not joking in the slightest. My heart needed to be prepared to be prepared. And I am finding it is breaking me this year as it truly is taking me deeper. Blessings!

    1. The cacophony is drawing us to a season of quiet and reflection, I believe. Oh and the bittersweetness of brokenness—it does take us deeper, doesn’t it. Thank you for stopping by, Joanne.

  2. I am thankful for the reminder that it takes I intention to sit and be still resting in God’s love. I hope you have a lovely day.

    1. Amen. Thank you for stopping by, Jolene. Wishing you a blessed Sunday.
