It's Five Minute Friday again!! I'm joining Lisa Jo this week over at Gypsy Mama to write for 5 minutes on the prompt of her choice. This is the pure, unedited, love of the word here, it won't (ever!) be perfect-but that's WHY it is perfect.
Here are the rules:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Get a little crazy with encouragement for the five minuter who linked up before you.
The prompt today is:
Backwards. My days are backwards when I get up in the morning and head to the computer instead of my Bible. My days are backwards when I get more excited about a good sale at my favorite deal spot, than I get over the latest insight that the Lord has given me.
My conversations are backwards when I get more wrapped up in what I'm DOing and what I want to be DOing than what God is teaching me and what I am becoming.
My priorities are backwards when I focus more on having a clean house and orderly surroundings than I do on what my husband needs or what my God desires.
It is so easy to let our days slip through our fingers in a backwards, unlived mess--all the while thinking that we are handling what is most important. I cleaned the house! I had a good conversation! I found the most aMAZing deal! But those things don't matter in eternity. What really matters is if we live our days front-wards. God first. Family second. Love, hope, joy.
Are YOU living your days backwards or frontwards?
