Our first day back to CC, and already failure.
I knew it last night really, the way it hit me when I realized we totally forgot about a little thing called “presentations”. We came up with ideas and practiced right before bed, even though I knew it wouldn’t be enough. And this morning I didn’t want to pack up all the pieces to the project the second child wanted to speak on, and irrationally suggested he just tell about one of his favorite books (which did NOT turn out well…) and the daughter who was going to give a presentation on her newly learned Spanish words but forgot her flashcards/prompt cards in the car, ended up with an impromptu that even I had trouble following. (As if God needed to reinforce that I don’t have it all together – a fact I notice quite frequently.) But He reminds me so gently through this beautiful song that I cannot get out of my head – this chorus that sings to my soul:
“Glory to God, Glory to God
In Fullness of Wisdom,
He writes my story Into His Song,
My life for the Glory of God”
(Consider muting the music player on the lower right of the page?)
The fact is, I will never have it all together, and there will always be things left undone, or unsaid, but He calls me to Him in the midst of my failure and creates music in the “open space”. Maybe these failures – these shortcomings are my empty space where His music can sing….
I can hear the melody….can you?
