Worship {Five Minute Friday}

Eid Mubarak...

Every time I choose patience with my kids instead of blowing up I am choosing to worship.

Each time I put aside what I am doing to get down to my kids’ level and listen to them I am choosing to worship.

Every minute I spend building my husband up instead of tearing him down with words I am choosing to worship.

Each time I listen to a friend pour out her troubles and really listen to what her heart is saying I am choosing to worship.

Every day that I choose gratefulness over grumbleness (new word!) I am choosing to worship.

Each time I look for the good in a situation, no matter how difficult it is, I am choosing to worship.

I write these words for all of us. I don’t always choose the path of worship.  I fail time and time again.  But every time I choose to pick my weary self up and try again I am choosing to worship.

And it is good.

It’s time again for Five Minute Friday!  Our flash mob of writers take to blogdom for 5 minutes every Friday, one topic.  This week we’re over at (in)courage!  Join us!

  1. Wow, I never thought about it from your perspective; every time I do good and share God’s grace with others, it’s a way of worshiping Him. Thank you for sharing. Found you on 5 Minute Friday.


    1. It definitely makes me look at all of life as sacred ground. Thank you for visiting, Patty! I’ll be humming the song you shared on your post all weekend 🙂 Many blessings!

  2. I don’t always choose to count it all as worship either, but when I do it just seems to make life sweeter. It’s my way of saying, no matter what, I’m giving this back to you God and may your will be done. It’s been awhile since I’ve joined Lisa Jo and the others flash mob writers, it’s good to be back. This is one of my favorite communities online 🙂

    1. This community has definitely made Friday (sometimes Saturday if life gets busy) my favorite day of the week:) Thanks for visiting, Alecia! Grace and peace to you!

  6. Haha, there really were a lot of us on the same page last night, weren’t there?! Apparently God had a message to send out to all of us mamas about our everyday acts of worship. Thanks for stopping by Being Confident of This. 🙂
