Five Minute Friday: Follow

Follow me as I follow Christ, these words echo in my heart and mind.  They are riveting to me.  I am not sure I want to declare these words.   Implications of this are scary to me.  What if I don’t keep in step with the Holy Spirit?  What if I screw this all up?  What if I forget to rely on Him and rely on my own knowledge?

I think of how brave Paul must have been and how much knowledge he had to have had to be so confident.  I am challenged and spurred by these words to know him more.  To follow after His heart.   I am confronted with a harsh reality that if I am to follow after his heart I must forget the beating of my own heart.  The desires housed by my selfish nature, and seek after His kingdom.  I need to change my thinking, my prayers, and this will change my actions.  I am left with no choice if this is the following I want to pursue one of whole dedication, commitment, and honor then I must commit to change. 


I must follow his way, his leading and not that of my own.  I must ask Him what He purposes for my life instead of relentlessly pursuing what I want with my life.  Changing my desire to reflect His.  Follow him wholeheartedly earnestly.  Seek His face, your face Lord I will seek.  Follow hard after Him.
