Just Follow Me

He came upon some men fishing and he said “follow me” and they dropped what they were doing and followed him.
What is the one requirement to this walk that we are on? Just “follow me.” That’s all we are required to do. You are not asked to change yourself so that you can follow Him. All that is required is that you “follow me”. Can you drop what you are doing? Thinking? Saying? Contemplating? and just “follow Him?” He didn’t ask that you follow your friends, your family, your pastors, or your mentors but just Him. He alone leads, guides, and directs you into all that He has to offer. Seek him first and everything else will follow. When you follow Him he does the changing, he does the rearranging so that you are more like who He created you to be originally. Isn’t that amazing. You are not required to DO anything but just “follow Him.” Let’s take the example that was given to us and just “follow Him.”

His Word

We need to soak in His Word, grab hold of it and never let it go. Read and meditate on His Word so that we gain understanding.  His Word must be understood so that it can be applied to our every day life.

His Word can give us peace in the midst of chaos. Joy in the face of pain. Love in the place of hate and give us rest for our weary soul.
His Word changes lives. Gives strength to the weak. Our Heavenly Father helps us so we can help others. There is strength in numbers. When two or three are gathered in His name you will find Him in the midst. His Word is life and gives life.

Be encouraged for His Word is with us always just like His presence.

Change is inevitable. It happens whether slow or fast. We need to embrace all that is happening in the hear and now. In the end it will all be worth it just continue to soak in His Word.

 

The Invitation

Last year I answered the invitation. Who knew the journey that it would take me on.
A group of 13 people, who I didn’t know. Who I now hold in high regard, whom I have come to trust. Although fearful; I could let them in without fear of judgement. Who have given me the room to grow beyond measure. They have given me tools and a desire to have a closer walk with the Lord. They have allowed me to see people in a different way and to see myself differently also. Their acceptance has made me brave. I can’t wait to share my story of how I was redeemed by Christ. I was brought from a place of darkness into his marvelous light. I saw Jesus in them, and now I see Him in me.

This is an open invitation. What will your response be?

Do You Trust Me?

What are you relying on? If not what, then who are you relying on?

What do you do when something is taken from you? Do you quickly find another solution (yourself) or ask what is next (God)? Your actions following what is taken will determine where your heart/head is. We would like to think that we have given it all to the Father but our actions/words show differently. It’s one thing to say that you trust Him with your life but it’s another to allow him to direct the situations in your life. 

Where are you at with this? Are you in the saying phase or the action phase? When He takes away something that you are depending on, do you wait for the next thing that He has in store for you or revert back to what you are custom or use to doing? Don’t allow your old ways to be set back in. Trust Him even more, believe/know that He has what is best for you. He knows the plans that He has for you. All you have to do is step back and watch that plan work itself out. It may be difficult but He promised that he would take care of you. Allow Him to do that, you won’t regret it. Now go and Live it out for Him.
