Prime Directive – Life

 

Before Time,
You chose me to be.
You chose my time.
You chose my place.
You chose my people.
You chose my fore-bearers.
You chose my parents.
You chose my soul
And the gifts,
That make me, uniquely, me.

You made me free,
Yet, tied in space
To time and place,
To a People,
To mother and father,
To one womb,
You bid me grow.

You said seek Me.
You gave me eyes to see.
You gave me ears to hear.
You gave me hands to hold.
You gave me mind,
And will,
And intellect.

You said ask Me.
You said lean on me.
You said choose life.
For freedom, love and life,
Free to choose,
I choose You.

One thought on “Prime Directive – Life

  1. Love this poem. I have often meditated on God’s deliberate selection of the time, place, and family into which I was born. And being given a specific job to do for Him that no one else can fulfill the way that I can with His grace. Nothing is random.
