Follow Me

Oh this life of following you..
To my head, it is nothing new
of how You said, “come follow Me,
it is through this life
that I want to set you free!”
I have known the “yes’s” and the “no’s”
through the very highs and the very lows
but in order to really follow you
did You really say “deny” and did You really say “go”
I fought and debated
I argued and related
but to die to me?
what is this?
will it really set me free?
Oh how I have said, ” I like this seat, this view from the pew
it is comfy and really is quite a retreat
a break from the hassle of being a mom
the running, the racing, the hustles and the yawns
I like the comfort from this point of view
I have even served more than my due”
But You said “Take my hand
pick up this cross, it is time to stand,
no more “I’s”, “me’s”, “myself” and “my’s”
No more wasting life on these lies
No more time in this barren land
It’s time my child that you understand
It is not only for you that you share
I need You to tell them of how much I do care
you have been entrusted with my story
my death, my redemption, and grace
In this you have been privileged to represent My face
So remember My love and My cross I did bare
I suffered and died just to see you there
So you would be healed, redeemed and set free
So don’t keep quiet, or afraid…don’t you see….
So please tell them how very much they mean to me
Oh My Savior, what can I say?
What else is there to do,
How can I not speak love and truth
May all my days however few
be solely pointing others to you

Galatians 2:20-21 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives
in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and
gave himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be
gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!
