The opening song in Sacrament meeting was, “Come Follow Me.” During my fifty plus years, I have sung this song many times. This time was different. As I sang the first line of the second verse, tears came to my eyes.
“Is it enough alone to know that we must follow Him below?”
I heard, “Is it really, Nannette? Is it enough alone to know that you must simply follow Me?” The tears were in reaction to this tenderly expressed question, placed in my mind by my loving powerful Savior.
I have spent a Pharisaical lifetime adding to the list of detailed requirements for having what I refer to as “the true day.” I have whipped myself without mercy for not measuring up. It’s an exhausting way to live. How grateful I am for the simplified instruction to simply, moment by moment, follow Him. It’s Enough!
