Five Minute Friday Decide

I make dozens of decisions every day. Some are small and seem inconsequential. Other decisions are more important and seem to have greater impact and value. What I so often forget is that the decisions I make either draws me closer in my walk with Jesus or takes me a step further away from Him. I can chose to love God and love others as described in, or I can chose to make my desires my first priority. I can decide to speak words of love or words of frustration. I ultimately decide how I am going to spend my time, and how many time-wasting rabbit trails that I am going to pursue in any given day. I can decide that negativity stops here. By the power of the Holy Spirit, I can show love and grace even when I don’t feel like it. I get to decide. I pray that I make decisions that positively impact my little corner of the world.

This post is a part of the weekly Five Minute Friday link-up. My friends and I gather over at Kate’s blog Heading Home to write for five minutes on the topic of the week.

    It’s very true how many decisions we have to make. Sometimes the decision of whether the 2 year old needs a sleep or not and when is a tough enough one to make! Shouldn’t be, but some days . . .
