Lead Me, Lord

Lead Me, Lord, I will follow
Lead Me, Lord, I will go
You have called me,
I will answer,
Lead Me, Lord, I will go

This well-known song is a favorite to many. The tune is smooth and filled with emotion, and the words are a message from the singer’s heart.
Unfortunately, many singers abuse this song. They sing it, play it, make it sound beautiful, but they don’t really mean it. Read the words again: Lead me, Lord, I will follow. Who really means that? Would you honestly follow Jesus, letting Him take the lead? Lead me, Lord, I will go. Would you? Would you go? If God told you He wanted u to go somewhere else, what would you honestly, truthfully say?? You have called meGod has called each and every one of us. We are all called by Him. We may have different callings, but we are still called. I will answer… will we answer His call? Not with a No, but with an I will? Lead me, Lord, I will go….We must be open to God’s will. We must be willing to follow Him, wherever He takes us. We must be ready to GO when he says GO…. Another song, (to have my heart circumcised) says “I want go when you say go, to obey when you say stay” Is that really how we are? If you aren’t willing to let God lead you, if you aren’t ready to GO, then you aren’t ready for His kingdom.

Let God play the Melody

Music is beautiful. Music is precious. Music is amazing.
 To make music, you must first have knowledge about that music.
When it comes to music, you can’t have harmony without a melody. You can’t hear the tune if there is only back-ground singers.
Music is made up of little parts. Each little part in music, when played alone, well, just sounds like noise. When a person plays just the alto part, you can’t grasp the overall beauty of the song. However, when you put each of those little parts together, it makes one beautiful sound. The beauty steals your breath, leaving you entranced in another beautiful world.
That’s how it is when it comes to God. Each person plays their own part in the world. If it was just you, then the world would be….just a world. When each person decides to work together, it becomes a beautiful masterpiece. One important thing that many people forget, however, is that God must always play the melody. He must take the lead. Without God playing the melody, our parts would sound like noise. Our lives, no matter how much we practice our parts, will sound like racket without God’s melody. We can’t have perfect harmony with God, unless we allow Him to take the lead.
