– Already There – Song #26 –
We all may think we know a song, having heard it a few times, but it’s after those few times it finally hits our heart, soul, and mind. This sure was one of those being the words went right along with what I was thinking .
I am one who does a few miles run every few days but only, I repeat ONLY if my iPod runs right along with me. So there I was running one morning, thinking about my next step on that sidewalk, along with the next step needed to get my book published. My mind was overflowing with thoughts, needing to decide some rather important decisions.
I’m pretty much done with what I can do now. What’s next? It’s so hard to know the best step to take. I wish I knew more. Oh Lord, help me know what I’m doing.
Then this song came on.
I was wishing, while running, that I could know how all my fears and questions were gonna play out in the book world I can’t control. I realized this song’s wording fit perfectly with all my thoughts. Like the song says, it was a mystery to me, hard to see where my book and I were going, and where God was leading me. I got the best reminder that God was all ready there. He already knows the outcome. His perfect hand will help put together, the best way He sees fit, all those needed book publishing pieces.
The best part was when the words reminded me that yes, one day I’ll be looking back at the life I’ve lived, God pointing to the areas I missed that showed His hand was obviously there with all of the planning of my book.
“I sure can’t wait to enjoy that view, and see how all the pieces of putting my book together fit,” I thought to myself.
By the time I got back home, I was reloaded with encouragement. God sure knew I needed that song that morning.
Are you working your tail off on some project, or are you going though some rather tough ordeal? Do you ever question if all that’s going on will ever make sense? Keep in mind that, as the song says, God will one day show you how your pieces in life were planned to fit together perfectly.
