Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is … Dedicate.


Dedicate – a quick perusal of definitions reveals words like “to devote; to set apart for a definite use; to commit to a way of life” (

We dedicated our children to the Lord in church when they were infants. As adults, it becomes their decision to continue to follow the Lord in His ways.

Dedication begins in the heart, each heart, our own hearts. Our hearts need to be dedicated to the Lord. They need to be fixed upon the Lord. He must rule and reign in our lives. We each must determine to walk with integrity always and have hearts that serve God alone.

And so, before writing this post, I asked myself the question: In order to have a heart dedicated to the Lord, to what must I be devoted?

  • Unity. These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer, along with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.” (Acts 1:14, NASB)
  • Others. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor.” (Romans 12:10, NASB)
  • Prayer.Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving.” (Colossians 4:2, NASB)

Let’s tend to our hearts.
Stay dedicated because
“The integrity of the honest keeps them on track.”
(Proverbs 11:3, MSG)
