Willing to Choose?
When I sit quietly and listen, I can hear God whisper his plans for me.
But I feel I need to remind God, I’ve made my own plans for the day.
“God can you see my busy agenda?”
Some days I have so many plans and goals I don’t want to have my day interrupted.
Have you ever felt like that?
Do I choose my plans which are important and vital to my business and ministry?
Or choose God’s plan for me, stepping out in faith to trust Him.
Serving Him is to enjoy the great adventures He has planned for me,
and knowing I have obeyed his call gives me great happiness.
He is my peace and safe place, the one who loves and protects me.
Could I offer him anything less than my obedience choosing to follow Him?
He is Enough for ME!©
Thank you for dropping by and sharing your time with me.
Do you ever have interrupted plans? I would love to hear from you.
Have a great week!

I am posting my “Five Minute Friday’ with Lisa-Jo Baker and the Five-minute crowd a few days late this week. Today, I am taking five minutes to write on the prompt REST. Would you like to spend five minutes to write unrestrained, and let your heart and mind soar? Link arms with us at: http://lisajobaker.com/five-minute-friday/.
- Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
- Visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community…Why don’t you join us?
Where do we find rest, would I stop the world and get off this race of life that keeps me spinning. I find myself racing from one task to another playing catch up each day. Cooking, cleaning, washing, writing, it seems I will never get to the end of my long self-imposed list. “Hurry, hurry, faster, faster you’ll never get it all done!” Run, run.
Yet the rest that I long for, I find in the quiet of the morning sheltered in the word of God as he leads me beside the still waters of his love. Calming the turmoil, halting the winds and giving my soul the restful peace to keep moving forward in uncertain times. Whatever the day my hold, I know God’s rest is only a prayer away. He only asks me to live one day at a time for him, because he holds all my tomorrows.
Thank you for sharing your time with me, dear friend. Where do you find times of rest in the busyness of your daily life? I’d love to hear from you.
