"Sometimes your calling, comes in dream
Sometimes it comes in the Spirit's breeze,
You reach for the deepest hope in me,
And call out for the things of eternity.

When setbacks and failures, and upset plans,
Test my faith and leave me with empty hands,
Are you not the closest when it's hardest to stand?
I know that you will finish what you began.

I'm just one of the pieces,
I can't put this together but you can.

Here I am, Lord send me,
All of my life, I make an offering,
Here I am, Lord send me,
Somehow my story, Is part of your plan,
Here I am."

- Downhere, “Here I Am”

The big day is nearing. As I reflect (and hope and pray!), I remember that through the ups and downs and the roller coaster of emotions we have both struggled with and rejoiced in, we did at the beginning of this journey say, “here I am”.

Have a listen…

We know that however the pieces come together this “story” is a part of His plan. Our “story” is an offering.

Ever faithful and hoping for amazing, life-changing, heart-filling news on Wednesday…
