Anywhere, Lord

“Often His call is to follow in paths we would not have chosen. But if in truth we say, ‘Anywhere, Lord’, He takes us at our word and orders our goings, and then He puts a new song in our mouths, even a thanksgiving unto our God. There is wonderful joy to be had from knowing that we are not in the way of our own choice. At least I have found it so. It gives a peculiar sort of confidence that even we – we who are nothings – are being ‘ordered’ in our goings. It is very good to be ‘ordered’ by our beloved Lord.”
