Hurt & Pain


Which one of us has not been hurt?

Who’s never felt the pain?

Who with the devil didn’t flirt?

And felt their spirit slain


Even God has had hurt to share

The Lord has pain endured

His spotless Lamb had tests to bear

Where certain death ensured


We too should bear the cross life brings

Even to death’s embrace

When then in love our heart still sings

We’ll see our Saviour’s face


Much hurt can fill a mind with doubt

Can tear one’s soul apart

But God who knows what life’s about

Can see inside the heart


Often through hurt, anger pursues

Of this be must beware

It’s through our don’t and through our do’s

We’ll show through love we care


The Lord can see where eyes grow dim

Can see one’s wayward path

But Jesus wants us back with Him

And save us from The Wrath


While Satan tries to keep us blind

Seeking to rule man’s thought

But God who’s ways can free our mind

Has sent His Son to court


From hurt and pain through Christ arise

Shake loose the devil’s chain

Allow God’s grace to open eyes

And start to love again.....

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.
