It did not show up as some amazing revelation!
It was more like a slow progression to realization.
An understanding of what could be based on what I already knew.
What I did not see was the depth, importance or potential application of what I knew.
My sister said it to me over dinner, “You could do this with that!”
I heard her but my internal scoffer turned it’s back on the idea.
Then Faith began to shore up my confidence.
“You can, you know!”
“Do you really think so?”
“Yep, for such a time as this.”
Like that little red engine that thought it could, I began to think “Me too!”
A logo, perfect for the project, perfectly showed up!
A tag line, perfect for the project, perfectly showed up!
The vision, mission statement and proposal perfect for the project perfectly showed up!
A friend with mad editing skills and great visions perfect for the project perfectly showed up!
Realization is becoming reality!
But quietly, without fanfare, stealthily without notice, a familiar nemesis began to nibble away at the foundation of my confidence.
It elucidates every reason, “Why this won’t work!”
This time, though it is a struggle, I ignore the strident whispers of doubt that seek to slow my progress.
This time I pay attention to the heartbeat of my faith.
“With God nothing is impossible!”
“I can do all things through Christ who is my strength!”
“Now unto Him who us able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that is in us!”
Oh, yes! It is on and popping!!
