Today is Five Minute Friday. One word, five minutes, no editing. Today's word is WELCOME...

Every morning I have an opportunity...some mornings I take that opportunity...some days I speed right by it. Every morning He waits for me, every morning He anticipates my attention, every morning He welcomes me to join Him. 

I imagine Him sitting in my living room, in my striped chair; hoping I will curl up on my couch and just chat with Him. He doesn't need fancy words, He doesn't need a well crafted speech. In fact some days He would be happy to sit with me in silence. He just wants me to join Him, to invite Him into my day. He has written me a love letter that He wants me to read, to study, to soak up every word. 

He is Jesus, He welcomes you into His presence every morning! Don't miss the chance to welcome Him into you day as well!

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, 
left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 
Mark 1:35


  1. I love that our mornings always go so much better when we spend time in the word and with the Lord early! It sets an amazing tone for the day!

  2. I love waking up knowing that no matter what I am going to face that day...Jesus is with me! I want to welcome Him into every moment of my day :) #FMFParty

  3. Just popping by from Five Minute Friday. I absolutely love this post. Isn't it true that our days are better spent with Him? Your description of curled up mornings in your living room makes me desire that too :)

  4. Thank you for this reminder. I needed it! Blessings, Carrie from FMF
