I’m declaring today, right now, at this moment….. I’m on a mission.
Not just any mission.
A mission to finish 2012, with one specific thing marked off my to-do list.
The one specific task I’m on a mission to finish is my book.
Well, I have a problem calling it “my book,” because it’s definitely the Lord’s project. He just so graciously decided to pull me in to work on it and get it into print.
I began to wonder last night, just how the original authors of various books of The Bible must have felt while they penned divine Words from the Lord.
I wonder …….if they felt the same sense of reverence I feel when I write under the unction of Holy Spirit.
I wonder …….when the overwhelming sense of the Father’s love overshadowed them, did tears start to stream down their face onto their written page.
I wonder …….if they knew just what immeasurable impact the words they wrote would have on countless lives around the world.
Perhaps the Father gave them a glimpse of their future, and they knew they were on a mission to get those words recorded.
So that is why I’m on a mission. The Father’s only given me a glimpse, but I must be obedient to follow through with what He has given me to do.
In the end….I am not my own.
So whatsoever it is that He has given you to do, do it!
