Five Minute Friday — Path

Happy Saturday! Time for this week’s installment of Five Minute Friday.

Even though I’m typically a day late, I cherish this exercise. It’s give me a chance to shut off the world and focus on a specific word prompt. It gives my mind a chance to ponder the word and send the thoughts cascading through my fingers onto the screen for all to see — not always the best outcome. But the best part is visiting Kate’s place ( and seeing what others have written! It’s always exciting — and often informative — to see how my fellow FMF friends develop their thoughts in a variety of different genres. If you get a chance, stop by and see for yourself … or better yet, try your hand at it.

This week’s challenge is PATH. The timer is set for five minutes so let’s GO

Life is a journey. From our first breath to our last breath, we maneuver through life. It’s the same for all of us. Birth to death. A journey.

How we get from birth to death is what makes us unique. Which paths we follow helps us navigate the twist, turns, hills, valleys, forks and straightaways that are life.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a believer or not. You still go through the navigation process. But it does temper your decisions. Do you go right or left? Speed up? Slow down? Ask for directions?

In life you don’t always make the right decisions. You might follow the wrong path forever or for a time. But, again, you’re faced with decisions based on your decisions along the journey … and in the end, you wind up breathing your last breath.

That’s what makes believers special. We know that last breath isn’t the end of the journey. It’s a temporary respite that … STOP

… ushers us into a new journey, an everlasting journey of peace with our Maker (heaven) or torture without our Hope (hell).

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. NIV

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: What if we quit talking and singing about how Jesus wants us to live and actually started doing it.

    Great post! I especially like ending thoughts about actually doing what we think about and sing about!

    Everyone has a life or death decision to make according to Deuteronomy 30:19.
    Like you said we don’t always make the right decisions.
    But if we choose to love God and follow His ways, He will guide us into making better ones.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
