Calling for the Laborers

I repented for all my sins and gave the pledge of salvation to you.
I attend Sunday School, Bible Study, and give my tithes too.

I let folks know that you’ve blessed when I come to church looking cute.

I even pour it on heavy and make my hat, purse, and shoes match my suit.

I shout “Hallelujah” and sing all the songs, I even pray, fast a little, and search myself for my wrongs. I am always nice to people and quick to testify,
When they ask me about this joy I have, I tell them you’re the reason why.

When Pastor preaches and I know he’s right I keep a tear in my eye,
I am always seeking to do your will and make the necessary changes in my life.

But yet there is something inside me that Ol’ Holy Ghost,

That makes me want to continue when I want to give up the most.

I know that I am saved and at least half way where you want me to be,

But your Spirit within just keeps on pushing me,

It started off so softly but has increased greatly in tone,

I have come to the realization that until things are done He won’t leave me alone.

You mean there is still more you need me to do,
Why Lord?, “The Harvest is Plenteous but the Laborers are Few”.
Evangelize to my children; this is much bigger than you. Because The Harvest is Plenteous but the Laborers are Few,
Meet others needs, Sow more and more seeds,
Those brothers and sisters who are hungry are for you to feed.

Press past yourself and you will become more connect to me, And whatever I need you to do will be easier to see.
Stay before me in prayer and communicate deeply with me, And there will no longer be a doubt in your mind if it’s me that you please.

You don’t a have a limit to the work for you can do. Because the Harvest is Plenteous but the laborers are few. The time is nearer for you to report to the Father you see,
So, stop meditating and put feet to the vision I have imparted unto you. Then, the Harvest will be Plenteous but the Laborers won’t be few.

I am an educator, a wife of 24 years, and mother of three beautiful children. I have taught the word of God to all ages and love to share it in creative ways. I've always had a passion for written expression. Over the years, I have documented my personal thoughts and prayers. Poems, devotionals, worship songs, and more have come from my life experiences. Now, I am ready to share them with the hope that lives and hearts will be changed as well as greatly blessed. I am flawed but striving for perfection in Christ. Although I have fallen short of the glory of God, I am forgiven. I am loved with an everlasting love. I am FREE!
