“ Called” by Idella Edwards of Aldersgate UMC




by Idella Edwards

Aldersgate UMC, Marion, IL



you have called us to live in this land,

to serve a people in need;

you called us to teach,

you called us to preach

and to plant just one little seed.

You called us to leave the familiar behind

and forsake our comfortable pew.

The harvest is plentiful,

time is short,

and laborers are few.

Our hands are firmly planted in Yours,

we know You’ll supply every need;

We’re called by Your power.

We’re called by Your love to follow wherever You lead.


“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.”

Matthew 19:29


This was read at the UMW meeting this past week.  I loved it so much I wanted to share it with you!

I am the mom of three beautiful daughters, wife to a genius, sister to a teacher, sis-in-law to an engineer, daughter to a yankee and a rebel, and a woman chasing God. I love to read, draw and be with my family. If the reading inspires me, then I draw what I read. Almost everything I draw is based around or about Jesus Christ. I attend church at First United Methodist Hillsville. Ronnie Collins is my associate pastor, also a blogger here. I love the Lord with all my heart and I hope what you see here will inspire your heart.
