Not only a call

After 2 Timothy 1:9

It wasn’t only a call,
a sounding in the night
or day, a voice speaking
into a heart, hearts.

It wasn’t because of works,
acts, deals, accomplishments
that we had done, it was
never about us, ultimately.

It was a call,
a call to a holy calling,
what we were given
from before the time
of the first page,
a call to a purpose,
not ours, but called
by grace.
Not ours.
Never ours.
