😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace and presence be with you.  When you hear or sing the words, “Here I am Lord.”, what is the next line you think or sing?

1) Is it I Lord?

2) It is I Lord.

Are you questioning what God has called you to do or are you making a statement the He can count on you to do your part?  Switching the position of those two words makes a huge difference.

It can be challenging to confidently move forward and pursue what God is calling you to do, if you don’t have clear vison of what exactly it is He is calling you do.  It can be even more challenging when you are in full pursuit of what He has placed before you, then He tells you to hit the brakes. 

Brian and I are in the midst of a big project, that in our minds is just spinning its wheels in about 2 feet of mud, buried up to its axle.  As much as we want to move forward, we called a temporary stop to the project.  I feel we’ve taken on this project with a “It is I Lord.” approach, but compounding developments has made me realize that maybe the vison and development of this project were not as clear as we initially thought.  These types of “project” delays can happen unexpected any day, from marriage to parenting, working to retirement, and even life and death.  Especially in these moments, we need to be still and know that He is God.  He has the capacity to know all and work all for the good of those who love Him.  In moments like this, pure silence in His presence can lead to the best clarity.  Turn off the noise in your life and allow His presence to speak to you in the silence.

Bless others and be blessed.
