Five Minute Friday: Choose

I’m linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday, writing for five minutes with no extreme editing or overthinking. This week’s prompt is “Choose.”


Faith, for me, was a choice.

The night a pastor laid his hand on a Bible and said, “Either all of it’s true, or none of it is,” I chose.

I chose faith.

And maybe that seems simplistic, or na├»ve, or somehow not spiritual enough. But it’s true.

I needed something and here was hoe. I was tired of grappling with points of law I didn’t understand. I was exhausted with fighting Jesus’ insistent tugging.

So I chose.

When I hear people talk about being wildly in love with Jesus, I can’t always relate. I am grateful to Him, yes. But I don’t know that I can say I’ve had more than a few glimpses of that wildly-in-love feeling.

Perhaps that too is a choice, to keep getting to know Him that I might more fully love Him.
