Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Learn to Look {Day 19}

Five Minute Friday

{Writing for five minutes on the topic of: Look}

Here goes:

“Look at me.” The call of a child or anyone who seeks approval. We all do it some way or another, I guess.

At times, we need to stop and recognize the thing that our child had done. We need to really stop and look and see what great thing he has accomplished. Other times, we need to really look into her heart when she calls out because they she desperately wants our love and attention.

But how often do we really look. Do we miss out on those opportunities to study that person in our life because we are too preoccupied with our own thing.

The writer has the benefit of learning how to look. To gaze on and to really see what is before them. If they are ‘actively living’ then they need to use their sight to really see.

'Writing to discover yourself' has opened my eyes to make sure that I do not let the days, hours, minutes go by with out drinking in the scene before me so that I don’t miss out on what is truly important.


31 Days
This is part of a series, linking up with Nester, for the month of October.

You will find the rest of the series, Write to Discover Yourself: My Story His Glory, here

It is a series of posts of sharing what I am learning in Ruth Vaughn’s book, 'Write to Discover Yourself'.



  1. Thanks for this--I like how you say the writer has the opportunity to really look if we would only take it. Stopping over from 5 minute Friay, but love this as a 31 days series. I'm writing about motherhood if you want to stop by.

  2. This is so true, great minds think alike they say ;) Thanks for sharing! We're neighbors today at FMF :) Blessings!
