Anywhere With Jesus

7 10 2013

In 1887, Jesse Brown Pounds wrote the words to a song that are stuck in my head and heart today. Take a minute and sing with me.

Anywhere with Jesus I can safely go,

Anywhere He leads me in this world below;

Anywhere without Him dearest joys would fade;

Anywhere with Jesus I am not afraid.

Anywhere, anywhere! Fear I cannot know;

Anywhere with Jesus I can safely go.

Anywhere. Where are you going today? Some of us will get in cars, airplanes, or trains and take a physical journey. We can go anywhere in this whole wide world and never leave the Savior’s side or loving care. Some of us will walk in places of worry, fear, or stress today. Anywhere you go, Jesus is holding you in His arms, pouring out grace sufficient to meet your needs. Some of us will walk in the ordinary routine of our regular days. Whether in the grocery store, at the bank, or by the washing machine, God calls us to follow Him, open our eyes to His presence, and find our joy in His nearness.

My Jesus Resolution today is to go everywhere with Jesus. It doesn’t matter if I am taking steps onto new ground, steps into the unknown, or steps into the familiar and everyday. I can go anywhere with Jesus. I am going to be safe because He is by my side. I can depend on His guidance, rely on His wisdom, and have confidence in His constancy. I don’t need to hesitate, hurry, or have fear because Jesus is with me. Nothing will change His love for me or break His promise to be by my side. Today, I will keep humming. “Anywhere, anywhere!” Let’s go!
