YES LORD : confident, courageous and called

Women are the womb And the backbone of society So in this women's season We celebrate how we came to be When I look back in history at the many women Who have come and gone And the impact they made in our lives And the challenges they borne From Harrier Tubman to Shirley Chisolm From Mary Mcloud Bethune to Rosa Parks Women confident, courageous and called To bring their sisters out of the dark Women of impact called to lift each other up Sisters of King Jesus and in communion With Him we sup When I think about Mary the mother of Jesus I now understand Why she said Yes Lord I will acquiesce To all of Your plans And in spite of the difficulties and the challenges she would eventually face Mary said yes without hesitation Eventhough apprehension was in place We need to let go of that question "Lord, how can this be?" And comprehend that with the Lord God There's infinite possibilities As its not about the who, the what, The how nor the why Its all about the Holy Spirit And the power it supplies Yes Lord, Yes Lord we must come to realize That its about stepping out of comfort zones To reap the heavenly prize You can't come to God with stipulations Like you're in a contract debate Its God's way or no way not a minute to procrastinate And you can't expect to have it when you desire For once you've said yes Lord You must do as God requires So get out of the way And let God work on your behalf Sit down, shut up and let God Write the draft You may need to be pulled in before God can push you out You may need a tune-up or a cleaning To remove all the doubt And reduce the clutter in the spiritual Closet of your life So your impact will be as significant As that of Jesus the Christ And to limit the collateral damage To those you love, stay in position Now confident, courageous and called Because of your godly transition No longer pregnant with possibilities Now ready to give birth to your new reality To stop clenching open up And let God's plans come to fruition Allowing the spiritual midwives to prep you And place you in prime position Yes Lord like Oprah Winfrey I'm Confident enough to take on your request Yes Lord like Sojouner Truth I'm Courageous enough to pass the test Yes Lord like Mae Jemison I've been Called to take on this mission Yes Lord like Angela Mayou I accept it no matter the conditions Yes Lord like Mary I give you Complete and total control I'm ready to make my impact As I surrender to you my soul
