Here I Am.

The title of my blog comes from Isaiah 6:8, "Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?'
And I said, 'Here am I. Send me!'"

Downhere - Here I Am
From the album Ending Is Beginning

Sometimes Your calling, comes in dream
Sometimes it comes in the Spirit's breeze
You reach for the deepest hope in me
And call out for the things of eternity

But I'm a man, of dust and stains,
You move in me, so I can say

Here I am, Lord send me
All of my life, I make an offering,
Here I am, Lord send me
Somehow my story is a part of Your plan,
Here I am

When setbacks and failures, and upset plans
Test my faith and leave me with empty hands
Are You not the closest when it's hardest to stand
I know that You will finish what You began

And these broken parts You will redeem
Become the song that I can sing


Overwhelmed by the thought of my weakness
And the fear that I'll fail You in the end
In this mess, I'm just one of the pieces,
I can't put this together but You can


Here I Am, all my life an offering to You, to You
Somehow my story is a part of Your plan
Here I am

  1. Sarah,

    I am in awe of you and the whole journey that the you and your family are in right now.
    It has really shown me how to put everything into perspective. You and Terry have some extremely strong faith and it is a delight to know you both, and to be able to call you my friends!

    I am so convicted of not giving it ALL to God. I hope that you know that you are TRULY AMAZING.
    I can't imagine exactly what you are going through, however I know the struggles of waiting, and it is hard. I wish that I were able to be as strong as you have been.
    I also want you to know that you have been there for me when I needed someone, and I in return will be here for you!

    I am not the best with hiding the word in my heart...this is something that maybe you could hold me accountable for..
    but still I have come across 2 verses that I wanted to share with you today.

    --He will be very gracious unto the at the voice of the cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee. Isaiah 30:19

    --And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24

    I love you and I have you in my prayers, that I know with all of my heart, that our merciful Lord already hears before I speak it.

    your friend forever,
