Follow Jesus Wherever He Leads

Hi mama! Today, I’m sharing a brief reflection on what it’s like to follow Jesus when we go through struggles and confusing situations.

Today’s reflection is based on Matthew 16:24 where Jesus explains the concept of discipleship to His followers.

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” Matthew 16:24

Reflection

A true disciple of Jesus actively chooses to keep following her Rabbi, wherever He goes. Even when she can’t see where He’s taking her.

Through dark and windy roads.

Up hills and down mountains.

Through valleys.

Being a disciple is about learning to trust. Unclenching fists. Relinquishing control. Releasing expectations. Surrendering to the King. Being childlike again and trusting the Father of Lights from whom all blessings flow.

Over and over again.

Through dark and windy roads.

Up hills and down mountains.

Through valleys.

Questions for reflection

  • Has the Lord been directing you in a way that you don’t fully understand yet?
  • How can you let go of control and take a step of faith toward what God is leading you to?

Prayer

Lord, I don’t always understand where you’re taking me, but I want to follow where You lead. Lord, I choose to trust You. I will take steps of faith in what You have for me, even if I don’t know how things will work out. I trust You, Lord. Amen!
