Five Minute Fridays – What to Choose?

Five Minute Fridays – What to Choose?

Linking with Lisa Jo where we take only 5 minutes to write – #FMFParty. No editing. Just getting our thoughts and words on paper (computer).

Go –

What to Choose?

choose

So much to choose from. God gives me such wonderful ideas. I get excited and I am off. But sometimes there are just too many things to choose.

Today my slate said (after prayer and devotionals):

        • tap dance
        • laundry
        • make cabbage rolls in slow cooker (I have to omit the sugar)
        • start making more stuffed Tadeos for the fair (and someone ordered one too)

So needless to say I am in the middle of everything. But I stop every once in a while to pray. Because I believe connecting with God keeps me going. I believe He knows everything that is on my heart. And if He would rather me choose something else He is going to make it very clear. (But only if I am listening.)

The pause in between choices is the most important thing.

Never get so rattled with all that is before you that you can’t do anything.

Pause – pray and ask for direction. God always comes through – gives peace and productivity can continue.

Upcoming choices:

      • my first newsletter
      • expanding Under the Cover of Prayer by producing an ebook or short groups of topics together
      • One Day at a Time – will this be an ebook, softcover, devotional or Bible study?
      • two children’s books that need my artwork

But – each moment of each day is special to God. I look to Him for timing, for inspiration and for energy. And of course the best choice I ever made was choosing to follow Jesus.

Time’s up. Got to take the laundry out of the washer.

Your turn. Join us at Lisa Jo Baker’s Five Minute Fridays.

        The word choose always brings me back to the scripture in Joshua 24:15 “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD choose you this day whom you will serve; the Gods that your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood or the Gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD”
        I find it interesting that Joshua made that declaration at the end of his life. He did however he served the Lord his whole life. 110 years
        The word “choose” reminds me of my inheritance when in the 1930’s my ancestors choose to serve the Lord.
        Choose this day… there has been time of failure in my walk with the Lord but I choose not to give up, He chooses to forgive. I choose to press on to the wonders and freedom that comes with a Spirit filled life. To choose Christ is to choose everlasting life. Jesus choose to give His life for us and I choose to give my heart and life to Him. I choose to listen and do what He asks of me: but as for me and my house… we choose to serve the Lord.

          Kim,
          You are so right. Choosing to serve the Lord – first on my list. And I also am glad that Christ chose me too. And you.
          So awesome to see what He will do next.
          Blessings and thanks for the comment,
          Janis
