Five Minute Friday: Willing


{It’s Friday!  And that means it’s time for Five Minute Friday!  The rules are simple:  A one-word prompt.  5 minutes of focused writing.  No editing.  And then we link up here to see what God has put on hearts all over blog-world  🙂 }

This week’s word:  WILLING


Sometimes… the way things work out just makes me shake my head and say “Really, God??”

And I just sort of throw up my hands in surrender and say, “Ok, God… I get it!”

You may have noticed that I didn’t do FMF last week.  The word was “choose”… and I “chose” not to…

And so it’s 2am when I see the prompt for today:  Willing.

Ok God… so sometimes I am just not willing.

Sometimes I am not willing… sometimes I choose not to.

I don’t know why.

But I do know that God works his best miracles through people who have willing, surrendered hearts…not necessarily those who are most qualified, most “put-together”, the ones with the best resumes.  God works his absolute best miracles in those who are willing.

So… today Lord… help me be willing.

  1. Hi! I just finished my post and found yours next to mine (well, next to next since the one in between seems to be a photography link which confused me since my coffee hasn’t kicked in yet). I love your ending prayer – short and very true – Lord, today help me be willing. Willing to help my family with the heart that God has given me. One of love, and caring and not of selfishness where I would rather choose (yes that word was hard for me too) what I want to do instead of doing for others. It is true that God does use us when we feel we aren’t the most qualified and he really stretches us and gives us what we need to be of help to others and willing to do His will – not ours. Happy Friday!

  2. Love this, thank you for sharing!! I hadn’t done FMF in a few weeks, either. You made me laugh with
    “the word was ‘choose’ and I ‘chose’ not to,” lol. You’re so right, though. “Willing” is all God requires to do some pretty spectacular things!
