My latest prayer journal entry was spent looking back over the past year or so meditating on how God has lead my life over the past little while. To be honest I don't think this journal entry is quite finished there is still more in this conversation I want to say.
I just can't seem to find the words for the emotions that flow out when I think about how far I have come in my journey with him.
Maybe the conversation feels unfinished because there is so much more of the journey yet to go? So much more I need to learn. What an exciting journey, I cant wait to see what God will do next.
To go higher. To go deeper. To trust harder. To be kinder. To love more. To let go and let God
A while ago
A while ago I prayed Lord
Show me something new
Make a change
Close some doors and open others
Give me strength to follow you
To step off that ledge, jump off that cliff into the unknown
Trusting you to catch me, lead the way
And bring me safely home
Lord I need you every day
A while a go I prayed
That some things must change
And change they did
You inclined your ear
listened to my prayer
How can I now not follow you?
For I know that you are there
A while ago I sang Lord
Is there something I can do?
Make me your vessel
Make me an offering
Make me whatever you want me to be
A while ago you answered Lord
Stirred my heart
A leading, a call from heaven
Irresistible, too hard to ignore
All I need to do is trust in you
And step through that open door
Now you lead me Lord
Lead me through that open door
You took my hand
And said look, alone here you do not stand
I am here and so are others just like you who have listened to my call
Just take my hand
You said come
Follow me, there’s a life filled with peace and joy so deep
Just watch it overflow.
Speaking for myself I often don't see the road he's lead me on until I look back to see the footsteps.
How's your journey with God? Have you looked back and thought about it? Have you thought about how he has lead you to bring you where you are?
