Five Minute Friday - Choose

Each day I live
I have the opportunity to choose

Will I serve the Lord
Or will I serve myself

Will I yield and bend to the Lord’s will
Or will I be stiff necked and unbending

Will I seek the Lord
Or will I pursue my own interests

Will I love the Lord
Or will I love this world and things which are perishing

Will I invest my time reading God’s Word
Or will I waste time on the foolish things of this world

Will I come boldly before the throne of grace in prayer
Or will I choose to grumble and complain

Do I want to hear God’s commendation
Or do I desire man’s approval

Will I choose to glorify God in all things
Or will I seek to glorify myself

Each day I have the opportunity to choose
Choose this day Whom I will serve
