Ready For What?


I just don’t get it. What DOES that mean? Ready now…for what? Hmm, oh well. This is what I have said every time I’ve heard, “Lord I’m Ready Now,” by Plumb. Until last night. After a full day of girlfriends, laughter, prayer, and the insistence that I have one of, “those,” conversations with a friend. Yes, the conversation that I had precisely been working so hard to avoid. Driving home from the girls and their, “PHS-Prayer Hot Seat,” I couldn’t shake the unanimous resounding of their voices. Nah, I’ll just go on with the uneasiness, anxiousness, road-blocking, tear inducing days that had served me so well lately. Or not. Ok then…let’s rip this thing off like a band aid, with. That would be my A#1, Sister-Christian plan. And so it began. The instant I sent the text asking for a meeting, I watched to make sure it went through, I could have no hiccups in this deal. Then I got the first undeniable sign that God was indeed in this meeting. The text immediately said, “Delivered,” only this time unlike any other text I had ever sent, I knew I…, was being, “Delivered.” The hours leading to the meeting were peaceful, but oh-so-full of prayer. I was in the driver’s seat, yet had no idea what I was going to say. I knew God had the words for me. He had taught me this on many other occasions. Finally, it was time to go. The car was full of worship songs, I knew them all and just sang along. As I entered the parking lot of the agreed upon meeting spot, Plumb began to sing the song that I hadn’t ever been able to connect with. As I parked the car and listened…..I knew I was, “Ready Now.” The timing was right, I would let go, the walls were down, and God would be with us. And He was. ~ Heather Doughty

“Lord I am Ready Now” by Plumb

I just let go
And I feel exposed
But its so beautiful
Cuz this is who I am
I’ve been such a mess
But now I can’t care less
I could bleed to death

Oh Lord I’m ready now
All the walls are down
Time is running out
And I wanna make this count
I ran away from you
And did what I wanted to
But I don’t wanna let you down
Oh Lord I’m ready now
Lord I’m ready now

You called my name
I turned away
But now I
Am listening
I was so caught up
In who I’m not
Can you please forgive me?
I’ve nothing left to hide
No reason’s left to lie
Give me another chance
