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).

What to 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.
