I have decided to follow Jesus

I have decided to follow Jesus

Where are you my Lord
Are You on the mountains so majestically hanging high
Are You in the valleys so deep beyond the shinning sky
Where are You my Lord
Are You walking the crystal sand where life's beeches flow
Are You hiding in the forest shadows neath the suns ever glow
Where are You my Lord
Are You in the moon resting in the heavens light by night
Are You in the Sun giving the needed warmth so bright
Where are You my Lord
Are You in the star twinkles hanging so royally in space
Are You in the planets traveling precisely in their place
Where are You my Lord
Are You resting in Heavens beauty at the Fathers right hand
Are You visiting the darkest depths sorrowing for the banded
Where are You my Lord
Are You shinning in the newborn eyes so bright and so fair
Are You resting in the elders bosom just helping the despair
Where are You my Lord
Are You in our children as they grow in Your image so sweet
Are You in our mentor loved ones as they show love so neat
Where are You my Lord
Are You in our hearts patiently showing the right from wrong
Are You in our souls waiting to place us where we belong
Where are You my Lord
Are You pleading for our faith to accept Your eternal grace
Are You entreating our hearts to welcome Your embrace
Where are You my Lord
Are You standing by to forgive our sins for which You did atone
Are You preparing to except us at Heavens glory land throne
Where are You my Lord

As a child, often times when I would do wrong, I would just sit still and close my eyes thinking Mom could not see me. How wrong I was. So, where is our Lord Christ Jesus? Well, He is everywhere all the time. As David the Psalmist reminds us, we cannot hide from God.

"If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,’ even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Psalm 139:7-13).

However, He is within our hearts, those of us who by our FAITH, have trusted the power of God's saving GRACE through the finished work of the CROSS of CALVARY. And, for those of us who have done so,it is impossible to hide from God.

• "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9).

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of leading our church "praise and worship" service. And, I remember an old prayer chorus , we would sing, which was a favorite of our worshippers.

• I have decided to follow Jesus- No turning back, No turning back
• The road behind me, the cross before me- No turning back, No turning back
• If none go with me, still I will follow- No turning back, No turning back

Have you taken that eternal step, by deciding to follow Jesus? If so, Gods eternal GRACE not only saved you but keeps you as well. Then, and only then, will you know in your heart where your LORD is.
