By the Spirit’s Choosing - 2 by Raymond A. Foss

A knowing of our lives
the talents and strengths
our histories and beliefs
guiding us from within

By the spirit’s choosing
gifts from God
given to each of us
welling up from within

Our hands, our feet
our voices to God’s cause
becoming workers in the field
sheep and shepherds as well
doing our master’s work

& earlier poem:
By the Spirit’s Choosing

The talents, the gifts
shared in the congregation
out into the world
our unique ministries
all by the Spirit’s choosing

How wondrous
incredible to imagine
the way the gifts are given
to each to use for God’s glory
all part of the heavenly plan
