Poetry On Odyssey: "We Are Called."

Poetry On Odyssey: "We Are Called."

Inspired by SEEK 2019

When FOCUS announced that they were doing a contest for SEEK I wondered what it was. I looked, and the one contest was to send in a poem. This is the poem I never sent in, but these words truly pierced my heart and I am calling you higher to find where God is in your life. I want you to encounter him when he tells you to "Come... Follow me." To leave your old self behind and arise from the bondage that is holding you from not living.


We Are Called.

I myself did not know him

but in one look I knew the reason.

One day it came out of the blue.

Never knew how one could understand the shift of the move.


We are called to seek that conversion.

To leave the old self behind.

Where we finally look to see Christ before our eyes

and follow him side by side.


We live our lives by our mind.

To check off what remains a daily prize.

We don't see until we are redeemed

and are called higher to who we are meant to be.

There's a beauty in sharing what you've seen.


To walk with others to believe

and let the Lord enter into the heart that is lost and has fallen asleep.

We are called to seek that conversion

to leave the old self behind.

Where we finally look to see Christ before our eyes

and follow him side by side.


What are you looking for

and to whom and what do you want to surrender?

To finally give up what's been hiding under

holding you from the gift of forever.

To be renamed and washed in the water.


We are called to seek that conversion

to leave the old self behind.

Where we finally look to see Christ before our eyes

and follow him side by side.


Because what we await begins when we come and see what Jesus has in the glorious mystery.

To encounter something more in this story.

"New Girl" wouldn't be the same without Winston. He's unpredictable, sassy, and a little too obsessed with his cat, but we wouldn't have him any other way.

Every other character is great, but I don't think people give Winston the credit that he deserves! So, here's to you, Winston Bishop!

1. His pranks range from tickling someone's foot with a feather to crashing a wedding but either way, no one can compare to Prank Sinatra. 

2. His relationship with Furguson is the best romance on the show, even if it gets a little creepy at times

3. He isn't afraid to show his sassy side

4. He's a child at heart.

5. He takes his hobbies very seriously.

6. He stands up for his friends, no matter how ridiculous it might be 

7. He tells you exactly what he thinks.

8. He asks the important questions.
