Pocketful of faith

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

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
I’m giving it all
I’m giving it all

~Pocketful of Faith, by Tim Hughes

I heard this song as I was driving to church this afternoon. Initially I was singing along, and then decided to play it again to really take in the lyrics. And I could no longer sing. The words were just rolling over me and all I could do was listen as God did something in my heart.

Take this pocketful of faith

It only takes a ‘pocketful of faith’. That’s all I need to give him. I don’t need to wait until my faith and trust and confidence is great, he will still take it and use me even when it’s small.

Every day I’ll trust You more

This is so true in my life right now. I keep reflecting back to the person I was 2 years ago, 18 months ago, 12 months ago, 6 months ago, at the beginning of the year. Every day my trust and confidence is growing just that little bit more.

You will always have my heart

I don’t know what my future holds. I know that I’m currently in a season of growth and preparation and study, but beyond that I don’t know. What I do know, is that God will always be there and he will always have my heart.

When You call my name I’ll run

This phrase scares me. I fear what God might be calling to, what plans he might have for my future, what he might ask me to do. I pray that as I trust him more and more each day I’ll feel more comfortable responding when he calls, even if to start with it looks more like ‘When You call my name I’ll walk slowly’.

Anywhere You go I’ll follow

This is a reminder that anywhere that God asks me to go, it’s because he is already there. He will never ask me to do things alone, it will always be about participating with him in what he is already doing.

Lead me on into tomorrow
Light my way like the rising sun

And this has been my regular cry to him lately. I want him to guide me into the future, lighting up the path so that I can see where I’m going! I’ve described to numerous people lately that I know that I’m on a path but it feels like I can only see my feet, no further ahead. I know that God is leading me, but I would love him to ‘light my way like the rising sun’.

I guess these lyrics are my prayer tonight, as God continues to work through them to speak to me and guide me where he wants me to go.

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

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
I’m giving it all
I’m giving it all
