When God Calls Your Name

 

So the Lord God called out to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”
Genesis 3:9 – Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
When God Calls Your Name
Searching for something
But what I just can’t tell
It’s just beyond my grasp
It’s just beyond that hill…
Tossing and turning through the night…
Who’s there…?
I wake in fright…
Someone is calling my name I hear…


Who’s there…?

I whisper again…
Straining to see, in the darkness I stare…
Heart pounding…
All senses on alert…
Silence…
Darkness; yet I see a tiny spark of light
Ears tuned, listening with intent, but hearing only…
Silence…
Then, within a millisecond…
A voice loud and clear
Shatters the void,
I am waiting to hear…
“Where are you, why do you run from me…?
I’m been calling you for many years…
Come, and see
The joys I have waiting for thee…
No need of money or script or purse…
What I have for thee is free…
Bought and paid for
Upon an old rugged tree…
Come home now…
Your struggle is through…
It’s time to rest…
I’ve been waiting here for you.”


My search is finished…
I’ve finally found
What I was searching for…
Not success…or fame…or material things…
But perfect peace in Jesus name!

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
