A Call From God (Acts 5:32)

A Call From God

Some hear it in the preaching,
Some hear it in a song,
I began to hear God’s voice,
When my life was farther along,

My joints and muscles are tired,
I’m forced to slow life down,
That’s when I heard God’s quiet voice,
It said, “Your faith has grown.”

It’s time to listen and learn,
My plan for the rest of your life,
Oh, no! I think, I’m too old,
Too weak to conquer all the strife.

God answers my excuses,
Your greatness isn’t the stay,
I only use open vessels,
Your strength gets in the way.

My eyes are suddenly opened,
There is no decision to make,
God has called me to service,
There are no chances to take.

I kneel in prayer before Him,
An open vessel I’ll be,
So He can work His greatness,
With no interference from me.

I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.
