He > I

Last week at Church I had a great reminder (thank you Megan Fate Marshman) that when you dare to do something great – no matter what your scale of greatness – it can be easy to forget Who it is that’s actually Great.  I doubt I’m alone in needing this reminder, especially among those  daring to tap into The Creative and The Creator.

 

I heard a song in the wind,

And so I sang it out.

This song is great,

They said.

 

I lived a story,

And so I wrote it down.

This story is great,

They said.

 

I saw a picture,

And so I painted it.

This picture is great,

They said.

 

And as they said

This song is great

This story is great

This picture is great

I thought

I must learn to be great, too

 

But I am not great

 

I got lost

And lonely

And quite sad

Trying to be great

 

You see,

The song I sung was composed by another

The story I wrote was crafted by another

The picture I painted was designed by another

 

When they said

This song is great

This story is great

This picture is great

They were speaking of His work, not mine

 

I just forgot

 

I am not great

But I get to sing His songs

I get to write His stories

I get to paint His pictures

 

And those are great

Because He is great
