Called by the Grace of God

My Ordination (more pix):
And He said: “who will speak for the Lord?”
So, the Spirit of the Lord moved.
And I said: “Here am I; send me”
1 Timothy 4:14 is still enacted in the Presbyterian churches:

"Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership."

Poem of My Spiritual Journey:

Marching through the desert of reality, named sin;
God covered me in His righteousness.
For His Mercy Endures Forever.

Guiding me through the confusion of false paths,
He used calamity for my good.
For His Mercy Endures Forever.

Leading by the light of His countenance,
Jehovah’s Word illumined my soul,
Bringing His Spirit of Reformation
Reviving my parched heart,
He opened my eyes from shadows of truth,
Causing me to walk the old paths.
For His Mercy Endures Forever.

As a vine shaped by the Master’s Hand,
So Jehovah enlarged my soul
To be filled with Honey,
To be molded in Strength;
His Spirit watered my lips with coals of fire,
He sent His Angel over me.
For His Mercy Endures Forever.

Guiding me with His household servants,
He used the hoary head to mentor and many counsels
To direct my paths.
For His Mercy Endures Forever.

Marching through the valley of life,
God sends me into the Land and commands repentance
To bring life to the dead.
For His Mercy Endures Forever.

For Who can be saved unless they hear? And how can they hear unless one speaks? And who can speak unless one be sent? For He says: “Blessed are the feet of those who carry the Good News…”
