Called

I love this song. Our God is a God that does not force us into things. He is patient and kind, not overbearing or manipulative. He is a God that never makes me feel trapped. He is a God that gives me the option.

And, I could.  “I could just sit and hope to feel His presence, I could stay right where I am. I could hold on to who I am and never let Him change me from the inside. I could never let these walls down.”  I could. There are days where I am so tempted to just sit. To just be average, to take the back seat. There are moments when I crave to just be lazy and stay the same. There are moments when I just wish doing the right thing didn’t matter, where I wish I did not care.  There are times when I just want to ignore my problems, and never be real. It is SO comfortable. It is SO much easier.

But. I just can not do it. I can’t! Because He has called me higher. He has called me deeper. I hear this calling and I know I would never be satisfied with anything but him. I would always be let down. I want to step out of the safe zone, I want to let go.  I want to be where the Lord takes me, whereever it may be. Although it is harder, it is worth it. Although it is way more uncomfortable, it is worth it. He will be my strength and my comfort. I thank God that I can hear that. I pray that he would keep calling, and I would keep hearing.  I pray that I would listen in action and follow Him.

He is calling us all deeper, and calling us all deeper. We can just sit, we can just stay. He is patient, understanding. However, He is calling us. It is worth listening.

I could just sit
I could just sit and wait for all your goodness
Hope to feel your presence
And I could just stay
I could just stay right where I am and hope to feel you
Hope to feel something again

And I could hold on
I could hold on to who I am and never let You change me from the inside
And I could be safe
I could be safe here in Your arms and never leave home
Never let these walls down

But you have called me higher
You have called me deeper
And I will go where you will lead me Lord
You have called me higher
You have called me deeper
And I will go where you lead me Lord
Where you lead me
Where you lead me Lord

And I will be Yours
I will be Yours for all my life
So let Your mercy light the path before me
