Lead Me On!

Music Video Monday!!

Happy Monday everyone! :D Today's song is by Jamie Grace called You Lead. Love, love, LOVE this song!! So upbeat and a wonderful thing to remember when starting out the week.

No matter what your going through, God's mercy will never fail. Trust in Him and follow Him. Your life opens up and is so much better when you follow Him. Trust me, I know! :) My parents, teachers and mentors always told me I could do/be whatever I wanted to be in life. Just stay focussed and do it. Well, my pride got in the way and I kept trying to figure out what it was that I wanted to do and what would impress others. Then I realized that is not what life is about. Once I put my focus on finding my purpose in life and following God I became a much happier person and so much more at peace. Focussing on my relationship with the Lord, joining a church that has provided such amazing support and guidance and fully putting my trust in God has been the best decision in my life. Now I fully understand that with God I truly can be and do anything. I always had that little voice down deep (you know that voice that tells you what you really want to do?) but pushed it so far away because I had an overwhelming contradicting voice that told me it was just too good to be true...and also that other people would not think it would be good enough. I finally am seeing that little voice is breaking through and I am not only realizing that it can be true in my life, it is better than I imagined! I just needed to trust in Him that it could be possible!

So if you are reading this and you haven't fully trusted in our Father, I encourage you to please make that step. The best part? He already wants you in His!! He is there with open arms waiting for just have to make the decision to accept Him in your life. He loves you and wants you to follow Him. He forgives you for your sins, you just have to let go of any guilt, pride, hurt or whatever it is that is holding you back and fully trust in Him. Don't be hard on yourself, life is a journey and is full of highs and lows, each giving us something in life to allow us to learn and grow with Christ. Your journey will be much easier if you have Him with you and are following His purpose for you. So this week, a week in which we remember how Jesus died for us, let go of what is holding you back and accept Him in your life. If you already have accepted Him in your life, work hard to make each day focussed on following Him. Play this song and feel it in your heart, "You Lead, I follow!!" :)

Revelation 3:20 (NAB)
            "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, (then) I
              will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me."

John 3:16
            "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him
              might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to
              condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him."
