Like Hardened Steek

Like Hardened Steel


The hardest steel will twist and bend

Diamonds will turn to dust

Man’s strongest force fails to defend

Against demonic lust


To keep us free of Satan’s charm

God’s Fire; we need inside!

We need The Father’s strong right arm

Christ Jesus as our guide


To Christ we need to bend the knee

Receive life’s robe of white

The Truth; bringing sweet liberty

To walk God’s Way of Light


When Jesus’ blood has freed of stain

God’s will, will cause concern

We’ll die to self where Christ is gain

And hearts to serve will yearn


It’s then we’ll bend like softened steel

Self pride will turn to ruin

We’ll hear and see that God is real

And Christ is coming soon


Such joy will flood the heart and soul

Such peace will bless our mind

We’ll press towards our unseen goal

Convinced one day to find


For all within The Saviours hand

Free from the devil’s jail

The promises of God will stand

All else will surely fail


So now we serve completely sure

Through grace and Heaven’s powers

Knowing as we in Christ endure

Eternal life is ours.....

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.
