Surrendering To Victory
By Mark Edgemon

There are some things beyond our purview,
Beyond our understanding and willingness to pursue.
There are some things best left in the hands of professionals;
Overcoming our own self will is a job for a deity.
A cooperative venture between carnality and redeemed flesh;
A life long battle, fighting enemies while holding on to control,
Limiting our ability to alter time and space; limiting our domain;
Binding our hands to our sides; our words and thoughts to our minds;
Restricting His Creating In Motion; He's still waiting for permission.
 
The hope of mankind waits; waiting for eternity; running out the clock.
When the chosen vessel releases his grasp, the masses gasp in astonishment.
Desiring to see Him through a single vessel, powerful, great and mighty,
Walking through fire, through floods, treading water; through hell fire unscathed.
It has been done and He's waiting to reintroduce Himself...through a vessel surrendered.
 
The End
