where you lead me...

After my tears dried on Saturday, I listened to another song by MercyMe and it really hit home. I know that soon I will be a memory for a lot of people and that is fine. I'm starting to be okay with that. I need to stop looking at what is best for me and start thinking about where I can and get to serve God next. It is so amazing that I get to share His love with other people and well, it stinks that my time to do that at Peace is over, but that doesn't mean that I don't get to share His love with people someplace else.

God has given me a peace about leaving and "starting over" and I'm really just trusting Him to bring me to this new place and lead me to the right relationships with the right people. I will continue to have friendships with people from Peace and I will be part of their lives it will just be in a different way. I am learning to accept that. It doesn't mean that I wouldn't love to stay and be with them it's just that God has other plans for Greg and I right now and I am going to go where He leads me and serve Him wherever He blesses me with. So, I want to share this song with you because it really spoke volumes to me the other night and still does today. God places us in different locations and jobs for a reason. He does have a reason for our lives, there is purpose. He's not just medling. He's not just a meany who makes us move on after we've grown attached. He knows what is best for us...and I'm comfortable resting in that fact alone! God bless you as you "move on" in different areas of your life! And remember God is God and we are not!

Where you Lead Me by: MercyMe
What is life, a thousand roads a thousand ways. And why am I, so afraid to move. I crossed the line, I’m stepping out so come what may. I’ll get it all cause I’m drawn to you, as long as my heart is beating

Where you lead me, I will follow. Where you lead me, I’ll give my life away. Where you lead me, I will follow forever and a day.

I can’t deny your very presence in my life. And why would I ever turn away cause deep inside I know that I can not rely on anything less than faith. As long as my heart is beating, this is all I’m dreaming of to live completely in your love

I don't know if you read this Jaime but I want to thank you for posting this. I have been feeling much the same way about my future here and listening to where God is leading me but I have wanted to hold onto my own desires. I have not heard the song but the words were inspirational. Thank you for sharing your heart. You are LOVED!

just to make this autum from college in PNG now? I think it is but just wanted to check. I will pray that God would reveal more of His plan for you. Know that He is in control and His timing is PERFECT! Be blessed!
