"Come with me..."

A few weeks ago, I binged watched "The Chosen." It made me think about the disciples. They made one choice, in a moment, to follow Jesus. They didn't know the cost nor the end. They went because of who He is.

Jesus said to them, "Come with me..." They didn't ask questions. They dropped their nets and followed.

Mark 1:16-18 MSG

Immediately, they left their father Zebedee, the boat, and the hired hands, and followed.

Mark 1:19-20 MSG

We have to make that same choice...daily. A choice made without the voices of others (mom/dad, boos, friends, and family included...Yes, The Lord will send people to minister to you. Not saying forget everyone. Sheesh.). A choice made because of who The Father you. I know Him to be a father, lover, friend, protector, healer, provider, and safe place. Yes I can read in the word about who He is, but it just hits different when He shows Himself in the now and reminds you that He is still the same now, as He was back then and will be to come. Most of the times it just doesn't make any sense and honestly, I want to head back the other way, but my mustard seed faith and love of Him keeps holding on.

I want to encourage anyone, as well as myself, who reads this to make the choice to continue until you reach the promise (represented by the light in the image above). It (the funds, the understanding, your desires) is literally within reach.

Yes, it gets dirty.

Yes, you feel alone.

Yes, it doesn't make sense.

Just close your eyes and allow His existence in your life to guide you.

This reminds me of a time I was at a retreat and Holy Spirit had me minister to someone. I then became aware that He wanted me to walk backwards with them, with my eyes being closed. I paused for a second and said, "Lord, I don't know what you about to do, but I trust you in this moment." I started walking backward. I eventually, bumped into a chair, but I wasn't hurt. I changed my direction and continued.

The Lord is so amazing! I don't get it right all the time, but He loves me so, that He will allow me to make a mistake, or even just hit a bump in the road (which are little crumbs compared to God), just so I can learn, and make the choice again, to trust Him even the more, shift and continue.

I pray you always remember to trust, shift and continue.
