What do we do when we hear the Lord's voice say, "Follow me," and we don't know where that is? Or when we're afraid to step out into the world with all of its uncertainties. And again He says, "Follow me."

We need to take time to rest in Him, to soak in God's love and wisdom. But Jesus said to the paralytic, "Take up your mat and walk." And to the blind man, He said, "Go."

Lingering with our Lord is restful and fulfilling, but it can't be all that we do. Even when we feel faint of heart when our Lord calls us to follow we must go. I always want to know where. Where are we going Lord? But he says simply, "Follow."

When Peter and Andrew were fishing, Jesus said to them, "Follow me." They didn't ask where are we going master? Scripture says they put down their nets immediately and followed. Christ told them He would show them how to be fishers of men. Because they followed that's just what happened.

When the road before us seems daunting and unclear, we don't need to be afraid. The Lord will never lead us astray. Not ever. With confidence we can put one foot in front of the other and follow Him. He has a place for us, work for us, a calling for us. And when life seems to spin out of control, we can place our hand in his and He will hold on tightly.

When worries, doubts and the temptations of the world call to us hang on to the only one who will never let go.

Grace and peace to you from God,



  1. Oh, this was a great post. I love how we can trust Him fully, even when we don't al ways know where He's leading us :) :) Beautiful. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  2. Hello Heather.

    I honestly don't know how I'd get through life with the Lord. I know I'd make a big mess of things. So thankful for Him and His mercy.

    Hugs to you.

  3. I actually meant to say, "without" the Lord.

    Guess I ought to reread my entries before I post them. ;-]

  4. It's so scary sometimes, but the end result is so worth overcoming the fear.
    Thanks, Bonnie!

  5. So right, Kristen. I'm a big chicken, but when faced no other choice what is a person to do? Gotta go with God. He's my only assurance.

    Love you dear lady.

  6. Your post is really beautiful and inspiring. I am very glad to found it. I really like your way of explaining that how we fully trust him and follow Him without asking Him any question. When we are surrounded by worries; doubts and bad situations in life then He is the only one who holds us tightly and provided a way of escape. He will lead us if we will just follow Him.
    Loads of Love

  7. Emma,

    Lovin' you!
