I prayed over what I wanted to post today and flipped through some of my recent entries in my journal and it jumped out, as if the words would fly from my journal to my computer screen.
On Tuesday, January 4th, 2011, I attended the visitation for my husband's recent death. I knew I needed to start the day in prayer, if I was going to make it to the end of the day.
I read one of my husband's (John) favorite verses in my One Year Bible. I would love to share it with you today.
Matthew 4:19-20 (ESV)
And He said to them, "follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
John & I did everything together. We shopped together, did ministry, parented, traveled, laughed, cried, cooked, talked on the phone (constantly), Skyped together - and we followed the Lord together. And I know for some time - it's going to seem empty following the Lord without him. This was our favorite thing to do together - followship.
I'm sure you've had fellowship with the Lord - but do you have followship?
Currently my spellcheck tells me Followship is not a word -
let's make that change today!
