{{Today is Friday!!!  It is the day I link with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Here is how it works…. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. Everyone writes on the same word.}}

The word today is …. Choose.

As soon as I read the word for this week, “Choose”, His Word came through my head…

“….then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24: 15)

We all choose for ourselves. But we all worship something, someone.

And isn’t that what this Lent Season is supposed to be all about? Choosing to give up something to make room for Who and what truly matters? Choosing to tear down any idol which I may have allowed to creep into my life? Perhaps I have known it was erected in my heart and it seemed like too much work to remove. Or maybe it served a purpose in my life, not of Him, but of my own doing & goals. It became comfortable, had settled right into heart and wanted to stay put. No matter the reason, it is wrong.

So what will I choose this Lent – to worship the One and Only Savior or something else?

But I must choose or my heart will remain divided with parts of my heart strewn about. As I have typed, her words came flooding back …..

“Whatever rules our heart becomes our lord. ” (Jennifer Dukes Lee)

I will choose to have a heart that is undivided, loyal to One God, One Savior.

I will choose to let Him alone rule my heart.

Today I am joining … Five Minute Friday and Faith Filled Fri. and Essential Fridays and Beauty Observed and Fellowship Fri. and Heart-Filled Fri. and Everyday Jesus .
