Your words just tumble out,
Laying there in a jumbled heap
Are they noticed?
Or are they crushed like seeds on a road?
I HAVE MADE THE UNWORTHY WORTHY
THE CONFUSED WILL HAVE ORDER,
NOTHING WILL BE FORGOTTEN
EVERYTHING THAT IS SAID HAS BEEN PLANTED
IT MAY JUST TAKE TIME
JUST TRUST AND OBEY
But, I am just a young child
Barely able to speak-
And when I do speak, it is foolishness
Surely, You can find someone else.
BE STILL AND KNOW THAT
I WILL PUT WORDS ON YOUR LIPS
THE FOOLISH WILL BE MADE KNOWN
YOU ARE WHO I HAVE CHOOSEN FOR THIS TIME
I am terrified!
My mouth is dry and unclean
What if I fail?
WHO ARE YOU AFRAID OF?
I WILL MAKE YOUR LIPS CLEAN AGAIN
AND YOU WILL NOT FAIL- MY WORD NEVER FAILS.
There is so much to be done...
And so little time to do it in.
THE TASK IS SET BEFORE YOU
ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO
Lord, here I am...use me
MY CHILD, THAT IS WHAT I WAS LONGING TO HEAR.
*Based off of Isaiah 55:11 and 1 Corinthians 1:27-30
