Moving into Doing

 

 

I am grateful that God is moving me beyond the wishing place and into the risking and doing one. I wonder what I will find past the wishing?

 

Past The Wishing by Sara Groves

Im standing at the foot of this mountain
Wishing so bad that I could touch that sky
But in the time it takes to make my wish
I never take a step and I never try

I wish that I were closer to Jesus
But not enough to get me out of bed
For an early morning prayer before the
Rushes of my life take me instead

I’m past the wishing
Past the wishing
Past the wishing

I’m gazing in these deep well waters
Where the pennies of my life have all been cast
Ive decided I am going to save my money
To do something that lasts

You’ve shown me my man of Macedonia
You’re calling me further on
And I’m tired of saying “it’s a nice idea
I wish it could be done”

I don’t wish that I could go. . . I am going
I don’t wish that I could be. . . I am being
I don’t wish that I could do it. . . I am doing
By the grace of God I am doing.

What will the grace of God find YOU doing today? It will find me caring for Little Mae while the others go to school for a final fun day, thus breaking me into the summer gently.

Thanks for heart-composting with me! I appreciate your words.
