In Him

In Him


In Him is life, in Him we live

In Him we’re meant to be

In Him we learn our self to give

In order truth to see


When Truth is truly yours and mine

When Truth directs one’s mind

Grafting constructive in The Vine

God’s will is free to find


We’ll find that Christ’s The living Way

Jesus is Heaven’s Door

God’s Word is Bread we eat each day

To live forever more


He’s true life’s strength, life’s faithful Guide

Life’s course throughout the earth

Fire; consuming filth inside

And Seed to second birth


Life’s peace is in His saving hand

With joy, amazing grace

Faith to live, steadfast to stand

And see The Father’s face


In Jesus’ Christ all power reigns

The future’s clear to see

Severing bonds, demonic chains

He sets the captive free


For Him; all creation was planned

As Rock on which to call

The Source to seek to understand

He’s the cause of us all


    To worship Him, afford Him praise   

    Accept as Lord & King

    As Saviour, God, Ancient Of Days

    With Him life’s song we’ll sing.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
