Until He Calls

Until He Calls

I asked the Lord to call
Then pretended to wait
I put my Christian life on hold
And I continued to stall
 
I said I wanted a vision
But when it came time
And I realized the risk
I made a different decision
 
I said I wanted passion
But when given a cause
I took no chances
And spent my money on fashion
 
I said I wanted a dream
But when I opened my eyes
And reality hit
I closed them and started to scream
 
I said I wanted true friends
But when they appeared
I judged and dismissed
And kept chasing after the trends
 
I said I wanted real love
But The Son came down
And sacrificed His life
Yet I never look above
 
I said I wanted a gift
But when my talent was needed
I was busy with nothing at all
And my spirit's now stuck in 2nd shift
 
We all want a calling, until it calls
My Pastor said it best
Faith is a work order, it takes participation
But if you'll trust him and get started, he may do the rest
 
I'm eager to begin
The rain is on the way
I'm ready to dig some ditches
And with God I will win
