I Will Follow You

Precious Lord,

You faithfully lead and guide,

along the path of life,

narrow and hemmed in,

I follow your footsteps,

bringing refreshment and resources

in your perfect timing and grace,

I rest in the green pastures you lead me to,

and drink from the streams of your living Word,

I cling to the hem of your garment

in the shadows and valleys,

knowing you will see me through,

and on the mountain peaks and wide plateaus,

I run, sing, dance, and fall on my knees

because your goodness and joy,

I can’t contain.

You are my Shepherd, I shall not want,

and I trust you and bless your Name today.

Amen.

and worship you.

Your Voice Is Beautiful

Abba Father,

Your voice is true,

full of sweetness, grace, and light,

stern and splendid,

never condemning,

healing and loving,

holy and bright,

bringing life and hope

with utter tenderness to broken despair and shame,

relentlessly pinpointing, cutting through lies and bondage,

resurrecting by your wonder-working power,

gray black ashes, death and dust,

into creations of beauty, dignity, and breath,

you are gentle,

you are kind,

never insistent, frustrated, or angry,

supreme, confident in your power, love, and sovereingty,

persistent in pursuing

with your deep wells of mercy and loving-kindness

restoring, transforming me

into who you created me to be all along.

Bless your Word and Spirit,

I love your voice God.

Amen.
