God Asked; “Come Unto Me…”
God called my name….
I didn’t know what to expect!
The words he spoke. I won’t forget!
What he said to me…. I remember so vividly.
I woke me up in the night so unexpectedly!
As I heard the words, I jumped out of bed.
I wanted to hear what my Lord said.
He spoke, and wanted me to follow him!
I decided to obey and trust him as my friend!
What he desired, was to have a servant’s heart!
He was there for me!
Right from the start!
My worldly possessions… I left behind!
A new treasure in Christ… I did find!
Many of my “past habits” began to leave me!
As I felt God’s awesome love all around me!
My life and attention were now decided.
Everything I needed...
I chose to follow him 100 percent!
Fellowship with my creator,
is time well spent!
He’s my blessed savior and I am his!
And is with me each day I live!
Won’t you beckon his spirit’s call?
Living for Jesus makes it worth it all!
