“Burden us with what burdens You, where it burdens You, and let us join You there.”

As my husband prayed this prayer tonight, my heart cried out in agreement with this perfectly simple request.  I make life and ministry so much more complicated than this when it simply does not have to be.  I make faith in Christ into something I understand: chaos.  When in all reality, there is one command:  Follow me.

For all the times He’s said that to me, I always manage to find some sort of qualifying question or comment.  “But what does that look like? Where are we going? What’s the end result going to look like? How are you going to take are of this and that along the way? What are my responsibilities, specifically?”

Follow me.
