Because my life is not my own. . .

A brand new school year stretches before me.
My heart begins to crumble in fear.
My human nature draws back from the challenge.

But put those thoughts aside.

For the sake of a single soul. . .
For the defeat of our enemy. . .
For the glory of God. . .

I will go. . .

*I will go where there are no easy roads,
Leave the comforts that I know.
I will go and let this journey be my home.

I will go.

I will go Lord where Your glory is unknown.
I will live for You alone.
I will go because my life is not my own.

I will go.

I am going. . . Will you?

*I Will Go, by Steve Green

  1. Thank you, Hannah! Thank you so much! Today is my second day teaching 5th grade, and I empathize with you. But praise the Lord, He will sustain us both!

  3. Ah, my heart is already crumpling in fear, and I don't even have my visa yet!! LOL But like you said, "Because my life is not my own..." He said "Go." I must go. And He will give us both the wisdom, the strength, the motivation, the enthusiasm - all the resources that we need - He will provide. "O for grace to trust Him more..."

    1. Amen! He will see us through, and not just in ordinary ways. He has made my mouth drop open more than once at the ways that He works.
