with a voice that penetrates
the silent noise of my past....
Shattering brokenness, giving me peace
and wholeness that lasts
through transitions that take me from here to there.
Through processes that make me
undress and stand aware
of Love's call.
To a life of purity
that makes each mistake and pain
quake as they attempt to tarnish my heart
with their stain.
To constantly remind me of how often
I miss the mark.
But somehow, while in the storm
and fumbling through the dark
Me out of the shadows
of expectations and unjust judgment.
Away from the longing to have something
and be something, not meant
for me to have and to hold,
to keep and to be.
I'm shielded from this ungodly distorted picture of me
by Love's call.

Love's Call by Tina Steele
This was an absolutely beautiful piece defining the call of Love. Tina so eloquently expressed such great feeling and emotion. This writing takes the reader to a wonderful place of self-reflection, so that they too can hear and know when Love Calls! Great job Tina!

The poem by Tina Steele
I have to admit I can understand the author's feelings because I have seen and felt the transformation of God's love. When I gave birth to my son earlier this year. It was a horrible pregnancy and labor, but I fell in love when I saw him. Not just everyday cheap lip service love. This little man has transformed me from a selfish impatient person into a person with a big giving heart. I finally see what unconditional love is and it was only God who allowed me experience it.
