I’m back! It’s been a while, but I’m read to tackle this again. I love the prompts for 5 Minute Friday, and reading all the different angles on one word. So here we go!

Today I choose, to follow you. 

Each day is a choice, will I step it up and be the example that my children need to be? Or will I be selfish and ignorant, allowing my sin nature to take over.

Today I choose, to give my yes to you. 

My yes is my sacrifice of myself, my needs, my desires, my wants, for what God wants for me. To grow me, to use me as an instrument of peace in our home and in the lives of others.

Today I choose, to hear your voice and live.

Not the voice of the world, or the voice of myself dragging me down into believing things that aren’t true. Self deprecating, self indulging, selfish thoughts have no place in my heart. The glory of God is his word and his truth, which I CHOOSE to hear and live!

Today I choose, to follow you.

As for me and my house, we will serve you!

It isn’t the natural in me to sacrifice; it isn’t the natural in me to see the needs of others as more important. But it’s God at work, and my choice to be changed and grown that allows it to play out through me.

Make us your servants, Lord, show us ways we can minister to others as we choose to follow you.


Join others and their voices as they share their thoughts in 5 Minutes on Friday.
