Your ways are higher than our ways
And the plans that You have laid
Are good and true
If You call us to the fire
You will not withdraw Your hand
We’ll gaze into the flames and look for You.
My niece sent me this song last year—before she left for an incredible journey…
A few weeks ago, I received a note in the mail…someone not understanding our burden for the lost… “why do you go so far?”
“Why not stay here?”…
I imagine Jesus leaning over the table of Matthew, the tax collector and saying, just for him, “Come, follow Me”…
Without hesitation, Matthew rises and follows. No questions. No straightening of quill or parchment. No gathering of list of debtors…just obedience. (Matthew 9:9)
Matthew never looked back at his table.
His purpose was no long “his”….but it was now “HIS”.
Are we in that place of full on obedience? No matter what it looks like to the world?
He will not call you to a work –a mission—or a purpose that is not already written in the record of time…and that HE will equip and enable you to do—bringing Him glory and honor as you put your full faith and trust in Him…
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 NKJV
Will you go?
We have embarked on a journey of such…of seeking more of God. Through His Word…through prayer…through the very self denial of certain things…each one is different…but for each one that chooses this Way…Joy is found.
Joy in knowing Him in a way that is beyond words….it must be experienced.
Operation 180º may not be understood by all…but if you are willing for some changes in your life…by turning your focus fully on Christ—your life will turn completely away from the world…and target straight for the “Narrow Gate”…and take you all the way Home.

Are you ready? Willing? Focused?
Let’s go. Listen to this song: If You Say Go, by Rita Springer
