YES LORD: confident, courageous and called

Women are the womb and the backbone of society So in this women's season let's celebrate how we came be When I look back in history at the many women who have come and gone And the impact they made and the challenges they borne From Harriet Tubman to Shirley Chisolm from Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks Women confident, courageous and called to bring their sisters out of the dark Women of impact destined to lift each other up Sisters of King Jesus who in communion with Him supped When I think about Mary the mother of Jesus I now understand Why she said yes Lord I acquiesce to all of Your plans And in spite of the difficulties and challenges she would eventually face Mary said yes without hesitate eventhough apprehension was in place We need to let go of the question "Lord, how can this be?" And comprehend with the Lord God there is infinite possibilities As its not about the who, the what, the when the how nor the why Its only about the Holy Spirit and the power it supplies Yes Lord, yes Lord one must come to realize That you might need to step out of comfort zones to reap the heavenly prize You can't come to God with stipulations like you're having 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 when God requires So get out of the way and let God work on your behalf Just sit down, shut up and let God write up 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 of your doubts And to reduce the clutter in the spiritual closet of your life So your impact may be as significant as that of Jesus the Christ Now in order to limit the collateral damage to those you love stay in formation Now confident, courageous and called because of your spiritual transformation No longer pregnant with possibilities Now ready to give birth to your new reality To stop clenching to 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 Mary Mcloud Bethune I'm confident to take on Your request Yes Lord like Mabel G. Turner I'm courageous enough to pass the test Yes Lord like Mae Jamison I'm ready to take on this mission Yes Lord like Mother Mary I give You total submission Yes Lord I give You complete control I'm ready to make my impact as I surrender to You my soul
