Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be talking about something that has really been on my heart lately. I feel like as Christians, we sometimes hold ourselves back from following Christ. I feel like I’ve done this personally, and there’s a lot of reasons why we all do this.
I’ve held back because first of all, following Christ wholeheartedly is scary! God’s plan for us isn’t always easy. It can be so scary, because we don’t know what His plan is for us! We don’t know if he’s going to send us to a third world country to serve, or if we are supposed to stick around here in the middle of Indiana. We don’t know where we are supposed to go to college. We don’t know who we are supposed to marry, or how many kids we are supposed to have.
All of this not knowing can be so frightening. It can make us fearful. It can make us not want to follow Him and choose our own way. This is because of our selfish desires in life. Our flesh wants us to chose our path, but our spirit wants to follow Him. Let us listen to our spirit, and follow him wholeheartedly.
One of my all time favorite worship songs is called Even If. I encourage y’all to go listen to it, because it has truly touched my life and my faith so deeply. It talks about having hope in the Lord even when He doesn’t make things happen in the way we want. It also talks about how we should cling to Him, because He is able and a faithful God.
This song has helped me begin to get closer to God and totally dive into my faith. I was talking to one of my best friends the other day about a struggle she was having, and I was telling her how great it is to feel the spirit of God in every aspect of your life, and that we can feel close to Him day and night. Following Him is the most wonderful thing ever. It just brings such an indescribable joy and hope into my life. I hope you all choose to follow Christ as well.
We can’t only follow Him partly. We must be all in. We have to give it all up for God. He is the Shepard and we are His sheep. We must be willing to follow and trust in Him no matter what we are going through. He knows our pain, and he can help us through as long as we fix our eyes on Him and Him alone. We all make mistakes. None of us are worthy of His love, but He loves us anyways. He never fails, and he will reign forever.
Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
Having an undivided heart is so important. We have to be totally in for Him. If we fear God, then we don’t need to fear anything else. God will open doors for you, and He will take care of you! Have a great Tuesday everyone, and if you want to talk to me about anything feel free to message me 🤗 I’ll be praying that my message today brings you closer to Christ! Let’s follow Him not just on Sunday mornings, not just during our devo times, but let’s follow Him every single moment of every single day! – Cami
