Five Minute Friday – Choose This Day




Time for examination
Looking at where I invest
My time, talents and treasure

Is what I’m investing in
That which has eternal consequences
Or that which is perishing and will not last

Is what I say I believe
Being lived out in my daily life
Or is something askew

I fear my life is out of balance
That which is most important
Has been set aside or put on the back burner

Lord guide me as I choose
To put You first
Make priority that which most important to You

May I fear You
Not what fellow man may say
For I will give an account You alone

It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Surprised by Motherhood”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed challenged and convicted.

Hi Susan I can identify all too well with this. Getting things back in balance is my aim. Hope you are doing well.

Hi Susan! What a beautiful prayer. I often feel out of balance myself. I think that's the human condition.

I read a great prayer, and it basically asks for what you are asking too. "Make my way straight. Bless the work of my hands." Kind of a short Moses prayer. But it really speaks to me, and I think to you too.

Have a blessed weekend!
