The Calling

Judith Gayle Smith
royalline@qwest.net
-------------------------------

Repentance and life change? What do these mean?
I have called upon Jesus, what more do I need?

Do I have to be humble, must I be grieved
just to show thanks for the joys I've received?

You're too harsh! GOD loves me, this much I know.
HE'S smart, and HE knows that I will often misstep.

You're now telling me that wherever I go,
my heart should be watchful, aware of each step?

"Confess with thy mouth, and believe in thine heart",
I've done that and more, and still I am wild.

But whenever I feel myself yielding to sin
I should cry out to HIM, as HIS loved child?

I'm certain I can count on my Father's firm grip
always ready to yank me from Satan's deep mire!

But why would HE seek me when I reject HIM,
ignoring Him, following my carnal desires?

Performing unholy acts that lead hastily to death?
Can I break GOD'S pure heart to my sorrow?

Does to GOD belong my every last breath?
Should I truly care what happens tomorrow?

Yes, I've heard this before. GOD'S testing is nigh,
and soon all the earth will be shattered

GOD'S trumpets' blasts through lightening skies
will show us just what really mattered!

My head bowed, I now sit, pride brought down low
when I considerl HIS truths I've blithely ignored.

my broken heart knows there's nowhere to go
but bowed down on my knees with HIS holy Word.

Psalm fifty-one, David's most penitent prose
speaks my faithless heart full to my sorrow -

it refreshes my soul, recharges my life.
With HIM I will face each tomorrow...

with humility, repentance, and HIS Hand to Grip.
I now find He's my rock, He is my all in all;

holding tightly to HIM when I'm tempted to slip,
to Jesus, my Savior, I'll desperately call!

You who so patiently read this, enduring,
reading my heartbeats, and now yourself find

that your own heart is passionately burning
with questions aplenty, unsettling your mind,

please follow me in sweet humbleness deep
as we seek through repentance to yield

our self-serving sins, so precious to keep -
to Jesus, the Christ - GOD'S holiness revealed.

He'll direct us in love to GOD'S own dear heart,
Who waits patiently with the good saints of old...

welcoming us home, where we'll never depart
from the glorious wonders of HIS Heavenly Fold.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

It's wonderful to humble ourselves before Him. Praise the Lord.
