The Call

It is time for the set apart bride

to step out and show herself

Her season of hiding is over

Trained in obscurity

behind the veil

She has much to say!

She has much to do!

Much to impart!

Her mouth a container

of His oil!

The road she walked was

hard and alone

Many days spent on her knees

She could give up, but she never did

The wilderness created

for her demise

Papa used to train her to

be His skillful bride

She remember the shock

and gut-wrenching pain

When Papa summoned her

to the wilderness

Torn between her flesh and

the agonising pain

She could not say “no”

to His request

She could not settle for a

mediocre life

Religion could no longer

box her in

She wants to leave a legacy

of pleasing her King

Her love for Papa made

her hungry for more

She was made to go higher

and deeper with Him

In the shadow of Papa you

will find her

Drinking from the depths of

His heart

Many were summoned,

few answered the Call

She laid down her dreams

to follow His lead

It was never about her or

even her pain

It was about answering

the most important Call

The set apart ones who said yes

to the Call

Speak the same language

They mirror Papa’s heart

Dead to self, they no longer live

Forever ruined by Love

He knew beforehand the training

she needed to go through

Painful processes,

but she passed all the tests

Looking back over the journey

of becoming His bride

She is no longer the scared,

voiceless girl

The wilderness made her fearless

She discovered her purpose

in the midst of her mess

She discovered her strength

in the midst of every demon

coming for her

She discovered her identity

in Papa’s never ending

love for her

Different journeys we are on

One destination we will reach

In the middle of Papa’s heart

we will meet

We could and would never

say “no” to the Call.
