Just because I'm crazy doesn't mean I'm wrong.

Love & Obedience

As a parent, it drives me insane when my kids don’t obey. In those moments, it gives me insight into how God the Father must feel when we don’t listen and obey. 

I have a really great job – and part of it is that I get to lead worship in chapel at a Christian school for elementary and middle school students. 

Not long ago, our principal set up what she called a listening chapel. She had an awesome Pastor lead it. During different sounds (like waves crashing on a shore or a campfire crackling, for example) and in silence, students were asked to write down what the Lord was speaking to their hearts. I heard from students of all ages in the days following this chapel, independent of each other, that they heard the word “go”. 

It affected me so deeply how sensitive to the Holy Spirit our students are. Then I thought about the word “go”. I wrote a song about it, but really wanted it to be an an anthem of obedience. It is one thing to hear “go”, but it’s another thing to actually do it. Everyone’s “go” is different. It could be go tell your neighbor, or go across the sea to share the gospel. It’s really just a call to follow in obedience whatever the Lord asks of you. 

So, here’s my song.
