What does it mean to follow Christ?
It means joyfully carrying your cross to the end
Offering your own sacrifices along the way
How and why joyfully?
If I surrender myself entirely to Him
Something extraordinary happens
Swathed in peace wrapped in grace
I experience at my choosing, how I shall suffer
I suffer in truth, like I have been tortured
Burned by acid and torn into pieces even
So that you have the payment we make
For your sake, with joy in Christ’s name
It doesn’t end there for me
I witness the affirmations along the way
Through Nature, through Angels
Through the stars in the sky
Through the love of others
Inviting me into opportunities
To give God Glory
Not only to watch God do amazing things
But partake and experience them
We can do anything, God’s Grace
It’s what we choose to do that matters most
We could choose to lay everything to waste
And Nature would obey
But we don’t.. yet.
