Five Minutes Friday: Peace, Serenity and Harmony

87 / 100

I am linking up with Five Minute Friday.  The instructions are  ” Write for five minutes on the word of the week. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write. ”

This week’s FMF writing prompt is: PEACE


Timer Start: 

Peace: the first thing that pops into my mind is the phrase “Peace that passeth undersrtanding”

I figure if I write five minutes and don’t edit this  is apt to be all over the place. My brain does not understand the concept of ‘peace and quiet’. I am like a computer with too many tabs open and bordering on frying the mother board.   I am sure that is a pretty common feeling for a lot of mothers.

I’ve had a bit of clarity this week. To bring more peace I need to stop trying to please everyone and trying to mold myself to make everyone like me. I need to focus on my priorities.   God gave me life and it is my job to take care of this body and mind by putting on my oxygen mask before trying to be all and do all.   

I next need to put my family before everything and everyone else.  God blessed me with this family and it is my job to let them know they are valued and loved and not always put them 2nd or 9th on my to do list.

I do need to find some more quiet peaceful time to listen for Gods voice in his plans for my life instead of heading off on to whatever I think is supposed to be my next great adventure. 

Timer Stop: 

Ever had one of those weeks,? Me too! Hooray for Friday! TGIF. I love family time and look forward to it all week.

Searching my old posts I wrote this on Feb 20 of 2021 “Pebruary 20: Peaceable  I really really would like to see a LOT more of this in the world. Refer to the word Unity. I want to see us all more united and working along peacefully. I want a more peaceable world for the future.”

The other day this verse popped up in my email from a homesteader that I follow and I made it my desktop image. The image has cute little sheep and says 

[bctt tweet=””Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. “~Philippians 4:6-7″ username=”harmony2001”]

  1. Thanks for recommending my blog post, I appreciate it! We all need this, “I do need to find some more quiet peaceful time to listen for Gods voice.” I find listening to Audio Bibles also helps.

  2. “To bring more peace I need to stop trying to please everyone and trying to mold myself to make everyone like me.”
    I was just thinking this week about how peace comes when we know who God made us each to be and we can live with confidence.

  3. There’s a silver lining in everything, even with this inflation happening; I think folks will focus more on what’s important.

  4. It’s taken me my 54 years to understand how much peace is in scripture and in God. I don’t have to worry or panic. I don’t have to be anxious about anything. It is like a 12 step program. You have to work “it”. Daily time in scripture and prayer helps me grounded and focus. When you think about it, we deserve to have peace and harmony in our lives. I think we are created to be in peace.
