Passing the baton on to others

In ending this season
this time in ministry
handing the baton off
to some unnamed others
to continue the work
what they had started
serving together
in this time of God’s calling

We all are the others
those who have been appointed
each one based on our calling
to serve where God plants us
sure of His wisdom
that all will be right
all part of God’s planning
in His time alone
