Follow Me By Brenda Drake

            The words Follow me is the greatest invitation we can get.  Jesus does not promise us a rose garden but He does promise us eternal life with Him.  He gives us all we need to arrive victorious.  What is of most importance is our answer when He says, follow me?

Follow Me

Follow me, says the Father in the footsteps of the Son.
To flow in the Spirit you arrive on time to get the good work done.
Be as trusting as a child as you obey,
Fully confident to on the right path stay.
With faith and trust in the One you adore,
Wear the armor provided; supplied by the Lord.
The way is cleared, the enemy takes flight,
When you are surrounded and covered with God’s favor and light.
Keep your eyes on the Truth; He is The Way, and Life.
No matter the surroundings keep God’s Word in sight.
Seek the Word, speak the Word, and draw the Word near,
In prayer and in deed; live-it loud and clear.
Come let us continue this journey of the heart.
Fully rest in the Savior, who has wooed you from the start.
There is a work to be done.  God is your strength within.
You must encourage others to their life-journey begin,
To draw others to the One who sets captives free,
So they too are able to hear God’s Spirit say, “Come, follow me.”

Matthew 4:19
And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

John 8;12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Ephesians 6:13-17
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Am I Living in the Light? By Brenda Drake

We live in a dark world with so many things that can and will pull us astray.  There are times when we wonder are we going the right direction?  Perhaps we begin to question ourselves in our confusing times.  Are we walking in the light?   The walk of faith trusts God to lead and guide us.  He is also the light within that shows the way of right is Jesus. When we follow Him we prove we are Christians by our love for one another.

Am I Living in the Light?

When choice comes for flesh to show its face,
Is it rejected to instead reveal grace?
If you fail do you quickly repent and direction change?
Or do you find it too difficult to your life rearrange?
To answer your question, Are you living in the light?
Do you walk ahead in faith or only by what is in sight?
To faith-walk you need God’s light within.
He shows the way as you follow after Him.
To walk in the light you need to in the Spirit rest.
In belief and trust that God’s way is best.
Living in the light will reveal inner stain.
When living in the light God breaks away the chains.
Self and selfish ways are put aside,
So in the light you are able to abide.
The light of love will take its rightful place,
So another will successfully find the way of grace.

Ephesians 5:8
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
