It’s that time of week again, Five Minute Friday! (I know, it’s Thursday but it when I write my Five Minute Friday post.)
It’s when a bunch of us gather together and have fun on Twitter, we free-write for five minutes on a one-word prompt and share what we’ve come up with at Kate Motaung’s place. Then the encouragement begins! I love these friends of mine… none I’ve ever met in person! It’s one of my favorite things all week! Come check it out.
I invite you to give it a try. If you don’t have a blog, feel free to write your five minutes below in the comments section. You might just enjoy it as much as I do.
This week’s word:
As soon as I read this week’s word, I began singing throughout my home,
“O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him, Christ The Lord.”
I thought maybe my son and husband would join in. After all, we had just returned from our son’s school holiday choir concert, and songs about Jesus (yes, in a public school!) were fresh in our heads. But I was wrong. I sang it solo at the top of my lungs.
I love this beautiful hymn.
What does it mean to adore Him?
Dictionary.com defines it as:
to regard with the utmost esteem, love, and respect; honor.
to pay divine honor to; worship.
Do I adore Jesus? Really? I say I do, but do I? Do I always esteem Him, love, respect and honor Him?
Do I pay divine honor to Him and worship Him? Every day of this life I live? Or only when I feel like it, or only when I sing this song at the top of my lungs?
I think I can do better.
How different my life would be if I lived to honor and worship Jesus every moment of every day. Too many times I get too focused on me… my needs, my wants, my life. I’d say it’s about time to forget about me. The song isn’t, “O come let us adore Julie.”
After all, it’s one week until we’ll celebrate the birth of my Savior. Let us adore Him!
Adore. What a perfect word to snap me back into where my focus needs to be, not only during this season, but in each day of my life.
I pray we live to adore Him, not only in the next week, but in the days, in the months, and in the years to come! Oh, and I just heard my son singing this song from his bathroom. Made me smile!
Merry Christmas, friend!
Blessings to you!
