Path...(Welcome Back to Five Minute Friday)

I have missed my tribe.  Lately, things have compelled me to write on Thursday and as a result, I’ve given myself Fridays off.  However, as an emerging writer, I greatly appreciate the discipline that FMFs offer.  So, hello, my peeps. I am back if you will have me.  Welcome to Five Minute Friday.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking (harder than it sounds)
2. Link back
here and invite others to join in.
3. Visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
OK, are you ready? Come on and join the fun!

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5 (NKJV)


It’s not that I was going the wrong way….I just chose to walk the way I thought I should, in a Godly fashion.  Lately, I’ve yielded.  It’s not that I didn’t understand Proverbs 3:6 (my Gayle’s favorite scripture, the one on her vanity license plate…), I just wasn’t ready to truly be directed on the Path.

Interesting that today’s FMF prompt is Path.  Here is how I know I’m now being led…that I have finally yielded (it’s an ongoing struggle, but I fight less…) everything I’ve written or done lately affirms (confirms) to me that letting go is the most powerful act of worship I can offer.

I’m not a pushover.  I’m not easily persuaded, however, I am not obstinate, just clear.  When I say yes, I am committed.  When I say no, there is no debate (I do not often say “No” choosing rather to say “what you ask cannot be done, but let’s explore other options. Because I take saying “no” so seriously, I try to reserve it for the time’s its absolutely necessary.

Lately, I’ve been saying “Yes.” “Yes, I will be still.”  “Yes I will yield.”  “Yes, I trust You, differently than I ever have before, and I yield to Your direction along my path.”  I have not change direction.  I have simply chosen not to affirmatively choose on my own anymore.  My path has not changed at all. I have.
