I will Follow
It’s in the broken places, the heartache, that this revelation of His loves grows within me.
I am realizing there are still many unhealed places within my heart that He is healing, one day at a time, as I choose to submit myself to Him. Often times the sting can still be felt, but I know I am headed in the right direction.
I had a dream a few months back while walking through a major hurt in my life. I would love to share.
I was walking frantically around trying to find my purpose, my place, belonging.
After I had exhausted all my ‘options’ I started walking back up a mountain.
It became pitch black all around me, and I was frightened. I knew there were wild animals all around me. (danger)
Suddenly a full moon appeared, and the moonlight shone down upon my feet. God was saying, “just follow my light”. I will lead.
The moon shone on my steps only one step at a time, I could only see my feet, and about 12 inches in front of me. I had no idea where I was going.
I strayed from the light once, which led me to an abandoned factory …not my destination, I continued on.
I quickly ran back on to the path, into the light. The light brought me through some muddy places, and few ditches, but eventually I found myself at a rundown shack guarded by what appeared to be a homeless man. Not where I expected to be.
He called me over, I knew i had arrived at my destination but was somewhat taken aback by the run down shack.
The man opened the door ‘home’ for me, and the shack was full of golden keys covering every inch of space.
As I woke from this dream I felt God speaking to my heart that this is my place, my destiny, to walk with him daily, following him, and that He would lead me. My job was to simply rest in Him, and follow His leading.
Many of us find ourselves in this place. It can be frightening, uncertain….
I have no desire to fall into that place of striving any longer. It is simply too exhausting.
Many of us have been taught in this walk to fight and come against pain. But in those painful places, Daddy meets us, and brings healing if we will let Him. One step at a time we are brought into to levels of greater freedom. When we are submitted to Him He will lead us, and bring us into His perfect plan for our lives.
Lead us Lord, show us the plan you have for us.
