Morning Reminder | Flash Fiction

Sunlight streamed through the opened window as a slight morning breeze blew in. Standing against the sink water dripped from her hand and onto her face as she wiped her forehead. Dishes were done.

It was not a typical morning for her, in fact, she hardly got up this early. But the songs of cardinals outside beckoned that she arise with them. A honeysuckle fragrance scented the kitchen from the flowers outside, while she poured a cup of coffee and sat at the table.

It was homey and a calm feeling. One she had missed as it often escaped through the clutches of worry and fear. A Bible sat across her in a faded designated place. It used to be a place of solace. Prayer and quiet meditation were old allies, but ones she had not seen in a while.

She missed them.

She missed Him.

It was like no matter what was going on in her life, she felt His hand on her shoulder. But in the past year, more stress and worry piled on. Situations she wished and desired to have some control in, yet felt helpless. Confusion, frustration, and doubt began to eat away in her soul.

It had been for a while.

She felt isolated. Unheard. Unanswered.

Hesitantly, she pulled the Bible toward her and opened the Bible randomly. A highlighted scripture was the first one that caught her eye. Her scribbled words beside it. “He’s got this! Trust Him!”

The scripture read, “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

She had written it during a time of great stress. A time she needed assurance. It didn’t happen immediately, certainly not overnight. But that scripture was her first piece of assurance and she had clung to it dearly.

The situation she was in didn’t last forever, though she feared it might.

Just like now.

Her shoulders shook as she gently cried, “He’s got this! Trust Him!”

“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

    1. I’m so glad that this spoke to you, Mia!! Our God is good at reaching us!!! I am struggling with consistency with my book writing. It’s like as soon as I get somewhat of a routine my normal schedule changes and I have to adjust. You got this with God 🙂
