I Will Follow

God has given me a great desire this year simply to follow Him. I know that, as Christians, we are following Him, but that's not exactly what I mean. I have been a Christian nearly all my life, and I have always tried to serve Christ and obey what He asks of me. But lately, it's different.

At the beginning of January, I began praying fervently that God would take me to a place with Him that I have never been. I prayed that God would show me His face clearer than I have ever seen. And I prayed that God would allow me to be used by Him more than He has ever used me. I have prayed for those things for four months now, and let me tell you, I can SEE Him working! And I praise Him for it!

The biggest desire of my heart right now is to simply go wherever my Savior is going and join in the work he is doing. I don't care about recognition from others. I simply want to be used by the Master.

I love this song, and it describes very well my heart. My prayer is that you, too, will seek the face of God Almighty, and that He will place in your heart, just as he has in mine, a deep burning desire to follow Him wherever He goes.

Where you go, I'll go
Where you stay, I'll stay
When you move, I'll move
I will follow...

All your ways are good
All your ways are sure
I will trust in you alone
Higher than my side
High above my life
I will trust in you alone

Where you go, I'll go
Where you stay, I'll stay
When you move, I'll move
I will follow you
Who you love, I'll love
How you serve I'll serve
If this life I lose, I will follow you
I will follow you

Light unto the world
Light unto my life
I will live for you alone
You're the one I seek
Knowing I will find
All I need in you alone, in you alone

In you there's life everlasting
In you there's freedom for my soul
In you there joy, unending joy
and I will follow.
