Single-Minded Obedience: So simplistic yet so hard

To obey
To be obedient
To rely totally
on Christ
on His Word

Not on self
Not on peers
Not on feelings
Not on governments
peeling promises
resulting in half truths
and lies

But to cling
to all that the Lord is
to all the security He offers
no matter what the world

To remember
the dream
He gave you

To listen
to His still small voice
during the nights you cannot sleep
or during an exam you struggle to comprehend
or even with another with whom personalities clash
Don't let barriers prevent you
from hearing
with your ears, your eyes, your heart

Jesus hears
He listens
He answers

Do you pour out your heart to Him
who does hear your agony and

Do you wait for His reply?

Are you obedient in your response
when His answer
a step of faith?
