surrender to the call

reckless abandon
what my heart yearns for
release, surrender
for no other reason
than the call of my Master

whatever He might ask

a hand reaching out 
to a friend
to a stranger
to an enemy

a journey 
across the street
across town
across the oceans

our call to His service
has deepened and solidified
the red dirt of Africa
like grit in an oyster shell
developing a pearl
to surrender and gleam
for His glory

have you taken time
to wait, to listen
to hear the Voice
that whispers
more than it shouts

there is a call
for us all
will you choose
the narrow road of discipleship?
the reckless road of abandon?
I'll walk with you there...

LOVED this post- thank you :) I have been surrendering all to God as I face many unknowns in the imminent future- and this was exactly what I needed.

God BLESS you, faithful firefly :)
