Pulling back

Pulling back
by Joel Howard
a meditation on Jesus' transitions during ministry

Pulling back
Letting go of my following
Letting go of the crowd
Will they know where I am going?
Will I ever see them again?

Letting go
and not controlling
Not regretting following your voice

Pulling back
and retreating
according to Your strategy

Letting go
and retreating -as free as can be!

Jesus did not build his following
He did not chase the wind
Jesus knew his Father only
God would have it that way

Pulling back felt like death
But more was the death
that would have come
had he entrusted himself to them
