When a decision has to be made, it’s time to seek the Lord. But, it helps to be in regular contact with Him beforehand.
Continuing our jump back in time to around 1993, we are perusing the music from a project that Randy (my brother) and I did in our neighbor’s garage with just a recorder, microphones and Randy’s guitar. This song is an original of mine. I wrote it as I was considering and praying about moving from Highland Park in Bartlesville to FBC, Borger, Texas. Click the title to go to the link that has all the songs, including this one:
Coming to a crossroad; which one do I choose?
The road till now has been safe and narrow; now I feel my way I’ll lose.
One road holds security, it’s like the one I’m on;
The other stirs curiosity, of something just beyond.
But I have to stop and listen to the voice that speaks inside,
It is the voice of Jesus and His will I will abide;
It’s the sound of music in mine ear calling, “Come and walk with Me,”
I will soothe the beating of your heart and calm your stormy sea.”
Oh, Jesus, I will come to Thee,
I lay before You all that is within me,
For my life is crucified with Christ and the life that I now live
is by faith in the Son of God; to Him my life I give.
Coming to the crossroad; which one will I choose?
Not the one to fame and fortune if it means His gentle voice I’d lose.
My desire is to do His precious will,
And I want to be where He’s leading me,
For it’s there with Him God’s plan will be fulfilled.
Jesus said in Matthew 16:26, “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” Looking back 31 years ago (really?!!!), Robin and I have followed the Lord through some feasts and famines, some wonderful places and some arid places, but He has been faithful to walk with us through them all with amazing and wonderful people along the way, and the fellowship we share together and with Him is something that I wouldn’t trade for anything.
Abba, thank You for calling me to Your ministry and for allowing me to be Your hands and feet and voice. I also thank You for the wonderful and perfect helpmeet, Robin. She has been instrumental in who I am and for the caliber of our ministry. May we keep our eyes fixed on You, the Author and the Finisher of our faith and our journey through this life. Amen.
