Joy Dare - New Challenges (Bring it on)

We sit around, sipping water, nibbling on pastry, staring at him in hopeful expectation...waiting on the target.

He shifts uncomfortably (or maybe its my own "discomfort" I see mirrored in his innocent body movements), then...

"Honestly, a beffitting budget for this would be xxx".

I smile, she laughs, and together we sink back into the leather seats as if on cue.

"Clear lots of ground for your tents!
   Make your tents large. Spread out ! Think Big!...
 ..Dont be afraid - You're not going to be embarrassed.
     Dont hold back - you're not going to come up short. (Isaiah 54 MSG )

"We'd send you our concept, so you can break it down and get back to us on the next course of action."

He steps out of the room and we're left alone to discuss this. 

We dont know how, we dont know when, but we know WHO!

I'm excited. 

I'm always nervous when it comes to budgets, and this one voice keeps telling me not to get in over my head, but I cant help how I feel.

"Lets do this", she says her smile broadening and I know she feels it too.

Shall two walk together except they agree?

Mail sent, response awaited...  

He’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.”
        God’s Decree. Isaiah 54 (MSG) 

Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. (Heb 12:28)


PS: One thousand Gifts - Dare you to Joy. Take the dare to fully Live
