He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

Five Minute Friday – Opportunities Abound

Though it’s a day late…I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to participate in the Gypsy Mama’s Five Minute Friday Challenge.

As I go through each day I see that opportunities abound.  Lord may You be my focus and may I see everything through Your eyes and perspective.

There are opportunities to:
  • Praise God, especially through trial and tribulation
  •  Forgive those who hurt me or do me wrong 
  • Witness of Christ to those who don’t yet know Him
  •  Encourage and strengthen the brethren 
  • Take courage from the Lord and face circumstances or people in the strength of the Lord
  •  Pray for a multitude of needs, especially and most importantly to pray for the salvation of the unsaved 
  • Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ
  •  Turn away from that which is displeasing or sinful in God’s eyes
  •  Walk the narrow way that leads to salvation
  •  Speak words build people up in the Lord and speak the truth in love 
  • Read God’s Word each day

This post is linked with The Gypsy Mama’s Five Minute Friday challenge.  I encourage you to go on over and read some of the wonderful posts from others who join in.  You will be encouraged.
