Calling Me

by Tanisha M. John

I heard you calling me, so I closed my eyes to see you
I saw that the darkness was behind me,
And I stood before you naked...

Stripped of pride, stripped of pain, stripped of fear
Bathed in the light of your countenance

Suddenly, I was cleansed
Cleansed of the guilt of my sin
For I am a sinner-
Yet you have forgiven me and shown me mercy
Because forever is how long your love endures

I heard you calling to me
And I followed your voice out of the darkness
Out of the darkness of anger, sorrow and confusion

No longer lost and weary,
But at peace in truth with love and joy abundant

I am made to sprout up
As new flower from a seedling
Planted in the dust of the earth

I am made to flourish as I grow ever close to my Lord.
