Give me words to speak...

Today I had a big presentation for work scheduled for about 2pm.  The time was an estimate as I was part of the agenda for a weekly 3 hr meeting of our Senior Leadership team.  I wasn't really stressed about the presentation, but I knew I needed the right words and content for the message to be received as it needed to be. 

Coming into the meeting I knew that a couple of people were not going to be there that I felt should hear the presentation and that I was 4th out of 5 agenda items.  I knew that whenever my turn came, that there would have been 3 major discussions prior to mine and so short, sweet and impactful were words in my mind.

I shot out a quick prayer request to a prayer group I am in on Facebook and quickly felt the relief from prayers being said.  Just knowing that others were asking God to bless me with the right words was soothing to my nerves.  The meeting began at noon and at 1pm, my boss popped in to my workstation and said that they were still discussing the first item and it would be a while.  I went about doing things to fill the time (got that email inbox down to just 1 item :)...something I had wanted to do for a few weeks).  I waited and waited and then at 3:15 she came back and said that they had just finished discussing the first item and that I would be on the docket for next week...

My mind went immediately went to the prayers that had been said for this presentation.  I was comforted by this thought...God gave me no words.  I feel that He directed this result so that the right words AND the right audience could be there next week.  It is not about me and my words, it is about God and His Plan...even with something so minor in the big scheme of things as a simple presentation.

Thanks be to God for His blessing on my life today...

May you see the blessings He has bestowed upon you as well...

Awesome! I prayed for you! Sometimes his answer to prayer is a surprising one. :)
