I felt it, deep in my bones, the voice saying,
Yes, do this, it's for you.
But I so mistrust my own hearing.
And then you, standing so close to me,
engaging the conversation, turning to me,
shocked me with the question,
Do you want this?
I do, yes, I said with truth.
And then you, touching my elbow with your fingertips,
blue eyes shining in the sunlight,
floored me with the statement,
I knew, as soon as I heard this, that it was for you.
I was speechless in the face of your confidence.
I wanted to ask you both.
What is it about this,
that makes you so sure it is right,
that I am right?
And then I realized
it wasn't me
it was His voice;
that was what made you sure.
I was overwhelmed with gratefulness that
when I am weak
He sends me strong ones;
when I am uncertain
He sends me sure ones;
that He has placed us,
exactly as He knew was best.
