Giving it ALL up to Follow Him

I’ve given up!

No, I’ve not given up on life itself, but I have given up my life…you know, the one I have planned out…for myself.

Truthfully, as a Christian, it’s not about me anyway. It’s about God…and what He wants for me.

So today, as I sit here typing and thinking about my life, part of an old chorus written by Ernest W. Blandly echoes through my mind, “Where He leads me I will follow. I’ll go with Him, with Him, all the way.” And I wonder, “What exactly does God have planned for me? For the rest of my life?” I’m not 100% sure, but I am confident that wherever God leads, it’s in the right direction.   And that is the direction that I want to go!

  1. Jill, I see that you visited my very much under construction Blog about stained glass in Kansas City “churches” and elsewhere. I am very new to this. I got your comment by email. I did not see a comment in my dashboard. Any way, This is just my second day trying to create a blog. The area I am playing with is finding a theme that works with my intention. My journey is the various locations (churches etc) that I am visiting as I try to document and learn more about these wondeful windows. Glad to have you along for the ride. I will look over your entries and get inspired (perhaps in many ways!) So I guess I am now being followed. I will keep an eye on your work too.


    • Being a newbie can be somewhat intimidating at first. It does get a little easier with time. Glad to see you jumped in the blog pool. I enjoyed viewing your window photos. I’ve always been intrigued by stained glass, and am looking forward to leaning more by following your journey.
