I Feel Good

I feel good were words of a James Brown song of yesteryear. If you are a millennial or younger, you may have never heard of James Brown. His lyrics are in different commercials and sound bites today.

Those three words, “I feel good,” were refreshing a few days ago. I had just finished a project that was years in development. Hours of toil were on the screen representing the days and months of effort. There was a feeling of accomplishment, joy, thankfulness, and relief when you could say to yourself, “I’m ready for an edit.”

The project is now in the hands of a consultant to fine-tune the lyrics. The 150 moving parts required Devine guidance and patience on my part to wait on the Lord. Some days I had great inspiration, and some weeks, nothing. I mean nothing. Though I tried, nothing worked, not even a line. Then it happened. Things were beginning to come together. Sometimes just a little bit, and other times, a bunch. 

Day after day, the work went on. Bits and pieces came together. Major sections completed. And finally, the whole thing seemed finished.

Examining each section, I discovered certain little parts were left untouched. Once tweaked, all the pieces were complete for now.

God allowed me to put my hand on his plow (Luke 9:62) and go forward while never looking back. Because of his steadfastness and unwavering support, the Lord empowered me to complete this work for his glory. God granted me the confidence to begin and finish it. God is good. I hope I never forget that. Yes, it does feel good to be used by God.
