11. God Follower

Declaration
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

My heart is restless as I wander through this jungle
The trees above refuse to let the sunlight through
And somewhere deep inside I hear the whispered longings
That tell me I was made for more than this

A blinding flash of light falls down into the darkness
Slowly I notice strange new markings on the trail
The crimson drops are calling out to me come and follow
“I am the God who made you, let Me show you how to live”
And I cry…

I want to be a God follower
I want to go wherever He leads
I want to be a God follower
I want to walk the trail He’s marked for me
And be a God follower
(More than anything)

And now I journey on with purpose and with passion
Just like a dead man who’s been given breath again
And though this path can still grow dark with tears and sorrow
I know He will never leave me
So with everything I am I will say…

And when I reach God’s place
I will look into His face
And then I’ll look for you
Will I find you there?
Can you say with me…
I want to be a God follower
I want to be a God follower
I want to be a God follower
I want to be a God follower

Behind the Song:
"This is another song with a connection to the book Through Gates Of Splendor. In the dense jungle the natives must follow trails to reach any destination. There are many trails and specific markings guide the way to keep the travelers on the right course. If the markings are not followed you simply get lost. The missionaries explained that God has left markings on His trail that He wants you to follow and it’s marked in the blood of His Son. And they invited the natives to be a God follower and walk His trail. When I heard them use that phrase ‘God Follower’ I thought I want to be identified that way along with them. I tried to use this song as a way to tell the story of the Waodani as they came to hear and respond to the Gospel. As I was writing the song it was a great experience to try and communicate on several different levels that story and try to tie it to the story of Christ dying and marking the trail for all of us." - Steven Curtis Chapman
