It’s Five Minute Friday, and I’m joining Kate Motaung and all the FMF friends in writing on a one word prompt for five minutes – no editing or polishing, just write and then link up with others. Today’s prompt word is Yes.
Yes – a little word with a big meaning, when we use it in reference to our relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Yes – to anything and everything He asks. Isn’t that what Lordship means? He makes the choices and we do what He asks.
I wish this was as easy to do as it is to write. So often, saying Yes to the Lord means saying No to my will, to my desires. But if He truly is Lord, I must die to self and walk in obedience to His revealed will. The longer I walk with Him, the clearer that becomes. And the clearer it is that I can’t do it in my own strength. But the Holy Spirit that lives within us, if we are born-again Christians, gives us the power and grace to obey. We choose to walk in obedience because we love Jesus, and the Holy Spirit makes it possible. Such a simple description of what it really is to be a Spirit-filled, Spirit-led believer in Jesus!
So well said 🙂 Although, I think to write it is difficult, also 😉 Saying “Yes” to the Lord in our writing lives is not always easy.
Such a great reminder that it is the Holy Spirit who enables us to live a life of “Yes” to the Lord, thank you!

Thanks. I agree that saying yes in our writing can be difficult at times. But after I said yes a couple months ago, that I would do one blog post per week, I’ve found myself wanting to do more. I know that has to be the work of the Holy Spirit. He won’t work against our will, but when we make a commitment to obey what He’s asking of us – in writing or anything else – He’s there to help us keep the commitment.
