Faith to Hope


When Truth has touched a life misplaced

Convicting one of sin

When peace on earth one’s soul has graced

Salvation’s dawned within


Setting God’s love ablaze inside

With faith life’s facts to learn       

True hope to be the faithful bride

Of Christ who’ll soon return


Faith is the hope of facts unseen

Of promises divine

Hopeful one day as Jesus’ queen

To drink as Heaven’s Wine


What hope has faith God’s placed in man?

What hope can such faith bring?

Could it be not the devil’s plan?

To grieve life’s Lord and King


The Word of God explains quite plain

The past reveals so clear

Through self demise; is true life’s gain

When God we learn to fear


We need to seek for higher things

To walk in love and light

To seek the truth Christ Jesus sings

On pages black on white


Knowledge will come with wisdom’s dawn

At Christ The Master’s feet

Drink His blood until reborn

Through spiritual food we eat


By faith alone these things are done

Through faith we understand

Through trust and faith, life’s truly won

In Jesus’ nail pierced hand.....

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.
