Pocketful Of Faith

Take this pocketful of faith, It is all I have today, I'm giving it all.

I don’t want to get there
At the end of it all
Looking behind me
To see there was so much more

Take this pocketful of faith
It is all I have today
I’m giving it all
I’m giving it all

CHORUS
You will always have my heart
Everyday I’ll trust You more, oh God
Take this pocketful of faith
It is all I have today
I’m giving it all
I’m giving it all

VERSE 2
Leaving the safety
Here at the shore
Beyond the horizon
I see there is so much more

Take this pocketful of faith
It is all I have today
I’m giving it all
I’m giving it all

BRIDGE
Anywhere You go I’ll follow
When You call my name I’ll run
Lead me on into tomorrow
Light my way like the rising sun

It is a good idea to schedule an inventory of your life on a regular basis if we are going to live as passionate followers of Christ then we have to make sure that we are really doing it. There are so many other things to choose to live for that it is easy to get distracted and off course. If you wait to long to look back then you will discover that there are times when you have wasted time and energy on things that didn't matter.

It takes faith to be obedient and passionately follow Christ, to jump out of the deceptive safety of being normal, it takes faith but thankfully it doesn't take a lot of it. Just a pocket full of faith is all you need to get started on the road of following Christ.

It is scary to ask God if I am playing safe or if I am truly following him with the degree of passion that he desires. Do I really want to know the answer? It may require that I make big changes, nobody likes big changes, big changes are painful changes.

Following anywhere is my goal, he moves, I move, he calls and I answer, he leads and I follow. I must die to self so that I can live with fewer regrets and accomplish the work that God has for me to do.
