Five Minute Friday: Decide

decide.-600x600

This week’s Five Minute Friday word is “decide.”  **Click on the image above to find some other great posts in the linkup.**  Here goes:

One of the first things that pops into my head with the word “decide” are the lyrics to an old Christian song,  “I have decided to follow Jesus:”

I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
No turning back, no turning back.

Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
No turning back, no turning back.

What I like about this song is the firm decision made in the face of conflict and that there is “No turning back” once it has been made.  I hope that I can say these words with such conviction in my own life as well!  Listen to the song here.

Another thing that came to mind is the decision I made recently to cut back my blog posts to twice a week.  I realized I have other writing projects I would like to make time to focus on as well as writing here in my blog.  So for all you subscribers out there, start looking for a “Mindful Monday” post and also a new “Thoughtful Thursday” post!
