He heard the voice

After Genesis 12

He heard the voice
the command to leave
and that was sufficient
to pack up his life and
leave for a land he’d
never seen. The command
was accepted in faith
obeyed in faith
implemented in faith
not only a step
but a journey into the unknown
with families and animals
and responsibilities trailing
behind him in faith.
They didn’t hear the voice
but they heard him when
he said it was the time
to leave, to leave in faith.
