Five Minute Friday: HERE
It's Five Minute Friday when I write for five minutes flat on a word given to us by Lisa-Jo of Gypsy Mama. Our word for today is ...HERE.
Here I am. But the question in my mind is am I ready and available when He calls me to His Kingdom business? Or am I too preoccupied with my own agenda and to-do list?
Here I am. My heart's desire to do His will each day. But then I get caught up in the distractions of life. The urgent replaces the most important. I miss some of the opportunities to touch a life that is hurting. Instead I hurry on to the next appointment of my day.
Here I am. As I think about the obedient ones listed in the Bible, I want to be one of those who heard His call and obeyed. I know it may be a call within my own family or my neighbor. Or it may be to lend a listening ear to a friend who is hurting. Or to give a hug to someone in need. Or to visit an elderly person who is so very lonely.
Will I make the time to listen and ...obey.
Here I am. Do I even hear the Spirit's prompting?
Keep me close Lord. I am here. I want to be able to listen. I want to be available.
Blessings and love,
