My Calling

Brief moments of
Kingdom consciousness
followed by
days and days
of self- sovereignty
and self- interest.
I give
so little of me
yet I have received
so much of You.

I treat ministry
like a big
giant step
out of what is mine
what is yours.
there is no
mine and yours.
You have
purchased me
with your blood.
All that I have
all that I am
belongs to you
for Your keeping
for your using
for Your Kingdom
for Your glory.
All that I am
wherever I am
whatever the time
used in service of you.
This is my calling
this is Your will.
Broken-Down House, Paul David Tripp, p. 190.
