I will Follow

Lisa Lee | Adoption
19 Jan 2011

The question has been asked, why start the Journey of Adoption now?  We believe that God is our Guide.  Joshua and I have talked about opening our home to a life in need, even before we were married.  God placed it heavy on our heart to start making a way for another child to join our home.  At the time, we did not understand any of this since our financial status was not ready for adding a child in our life.   We where having trouble with many financial challenges and burdens.  We did what we could by selling a car, having Lisa go back to work part-time, cutting back in any way possible.  At some point it just felt like we would never make it  above water.  We still held on to the dream, never letting the impossible stop our motivation.  We simply walked in faith day to day.  Don’t get me wrong, it was not easy.

Lately the lyrics to the song “I will Follow” by Chris Thomlin, plays over in my head.

Where you go, I'll go
Where you stay, I'll stay
When you move, I'll move
I will follow...

All your ways are good
All your ways are sure
I will trust in you alone
Higher than my side
High above my life
I will trust in you alone

Where you go, I'll go
Where you stay, I'll stay
When you move, I'll move
I will follow you
Who you love, I'll love
How you serve I'll serve
If this life I lose, I will follow you
I will follow you

Light unto the world
Light unto my life
I will live for you alone
You're the one I seek
Knowing I will find
All I need in you alone, in you alone

In you there's life everlasting
In you there's freedom for my soul
In you there joy, unending joy
and I will follow
