It's Friday which means it's time to dance and sing (the daycare kids and I have a song and dance to celebrate this glorious day). Friday is also the day in which Lisa-Jo hosts Five Minute Fridays and I humbly join the party of words strung together in five short minutes by a group of fantastic writers. The rules are simple. Lisa-Jo provides the word, write for five minutes flat, no backtracking/editing/over thinking, share your link at Lisa-Jo's, and share the love by reading what others have written. It's great fun and so inspiring. Won't you join us? I promise, you will be blessed!
Today's word ~ BARE
Lord, I want to be stripped bare.
Strip me of myself so there is more room for you.
Strip me of my foolishness, my stubbornness, my selfishness.
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves
And to man He said, "Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding."
Strip me of my pride and my vain ambitions.
......if My People who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land
1 Chronicles 7:14
I bow humbly before you. Forgive me. Heal my land.
Strip of my idols, those possessions that rob me of time with you.
........store up your treasures in heaven
You alone are God and I want to worship you.
For you are great, and do wondrous things; you alone are God
Open my ears so that I may hear you.
The ear that hears the rebukes of life will abide among the wise.
Open my eyes so that I may see you.
........open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law
Open my heart so that I may completely turn it over to you.
Lord, I give you all of me.
Lord, have your way in me.
