YOU CALL ME...

You Call me...
To be childlike, to trust You Hold my hand...
To learn to run and skip and play,
To let You Bear my worries, Fight my battles in this land!

To be willing, to be willing as can be...
To lay my life down spiritually at any moment -
Just like Jesus at Calvary!

To be thankful for this life Given to me...
Even though I don't always understand
Some of its tragedy!

To be a servant both in and out of home...
To trust You for The Outcome,
Wherever  You Lead me to roam!

To be loving, non-judgemental - that one's tough!
I can only manage it
When I allow Your Grace to do Its stuff!!!

To be a listener - when I would rather talk!
It's really hard to seal my lips -
In fact, it makes me balk!!!

To be a watcher - to man these earthly walls...
Sometimes it's SO exciting,
At others... my enthusiasm palls!

To be Faithful, as You are Faithful to me...
I know who gets the best end of the deal -
Me!!!

To be trusting, in all You Say and Do...
To bring a quiet growth in Grace
To me from You!

To be a good steward of this world in which I live...
Not to ignore it, or abuse it - or go 'bananas' saving it,
But to listen to The Guidance that You Give!

To be a Peacemaker, I don't mind that one at all!
But do I HAVE to do it now?
Will tomorrow do to Obey Your Call?

To be open to The Holy Spirit's Voice...
It's taken time on my part, Patience on Yours,
But now at The Sound I rejoice!

To be all and more than I EVER imagined I could be!
There is no rhyme, or reason, 
Beyond Your Love for ME!

To be willing, Father, to hear my own Home Call...
So, I am willing anytime -
Just take a 'rain check' is all!!!
