Time for Five Minute Friday. Free-writing for five minutes on a one-word prompt with no concern for anything but pure writing. Even when our minds are mush, it’s good to stretch ourselves and let the words eek out. Grab a scratch piece of paper, write in a notebook, share it on your blog or in my comments section below. Five minutes. We gather back together at Kate’s place to share and encourage.
Here we go!
This week’s word:
There’s much to follow in this world. Or not.
“Follow your heart.”
From experience, my heart can get me into trouble.
“Follow the yellow brick road.”
That road was for Dorothy and Toto, but I’ve yet to find it.
“Lead, follow, or get out of the way.”
Some days I do all three.
“Don’t follow the herd.”
So often I’ve done just that. And ended up in a place I didn’t need to be.
Of all the “things” I’ve followed, I’ve found there’s been only One who has led me in the right direction, on the right path. The narrow path that leads to life. Everything else has led me astray.
But not Jesus.
He’s the only One I desire to follow.
Following Him will never lead to a dead end. But to life everlasting.
This wasn’t the easiest one for me to write tonight, but it’s where my heart is at today. It’s been a rough day, but even so, I’m not alone. And neither are you.
