Joshua 1-3; Psalm 37; 1 Corinthians 3

1 Corinthians 3: 6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. 7So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8 The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor. 9 For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building.


Ginny Owens I AM

No Lord, he said, you've got the wrong guy
Simple conversation gets me tongue-tied
And you're telling me to speak with a maniac king
Or could it be I've lost my mind
Besides, I am weak, don't you want someone strong
To lead them out of Egypt when they've been there so long
And anyway, they won’t believe You ever spoke to me
It's not your problem, God replied
And the rest is history’
Cause there's a bigger picture you can't see
You don't have to change the world, just trust in Me'
Cause I am your creator,
I am working out my plan
And through you I will show them, I Am

Now Lord, are you sure?
He's just a shepherd boy
Too small for battle gear with a giant to destroy
What on earth can he do with five stones and a sling
It's not your problem,
God replied' Cause I can do anything
There's a bigger picture you can't see
You don't have to change the world, just trust in me'
Cause I am your creator, I am working out my plan
And through you, I will show them
I am the first, I am the last
I am the present and the past
I am tomorrow and today
I am the only way

Great Lord, she said, I'm just a simple girl
You say that I will bring your son into the world
How can I understand this thing You're gonna do

It's not your problem, God replied'
Cause, there's a bigger picture
And you don't have to change the world (oh no)
I'm your creator, I am working out my plan
And through you, I will show them
There's a bigger picture, you can't see
You don't have to change the world, just trust in me’
Cause I am your creator, I am working out my plan
And through you, I will show them, I Am I Am

And I sit at Panera struggling against powerlessness……

The smaller picture is the bigger picture. Praise God. I'll have to give this singer a listen some time.

This song reminds me of an old Keith Green song, He'll Take Care Of The Rest.
