“…You have called me higher
You have called me deeper
And I will go where you will lead me Lord…”
I had forgotten which CD was in the player in my car, assuming it was the usual: last summer’s VBS soundtrack.
“And I could be safe
I could be safe here in Your arms and never leave home
Never let these walls down…”
Nothing was on the radio. I decided a few kiddo worship tunes would make the run-around-town-errands a little easier on my backseat passengers.
“And I could just stay
I could just stay right where I am and hope to feel you
Hope to feel something again”
Instead, this song released piercing truth through the car.
I let the words seep into my heart. Knowing.
He is calling me. He is asking me to step out of my comfort zone.
Yet here I stand: on these shaky knees with fists clenched tightly. Can’t I just stay here? At home. Fortified walls up. Where I’m safe.
The song was a reminder to my fearful heart. His adventure awaits. His hand is outstretched. He beckons, Come, my child. I will lead you somewhere beautiful. Trust me.
I will go where you will lead me, Lord.
Tell me I’m not alone in this. Are you feeling called to something higher and deeper? Does fear attempt to steal the joy from following where He leads?
