All of a Sudden


Salvation’s bells had barely rung

Their song had hardly ceased

When love sang out with Heaven’s tongue

And faith in life increased


My cup flowed full with Heaven’s Wine

Life’s Bread God gave to eat

I knew His love was truly mine

Beside my Saviour’s feet


Such peace began to flood my mind

Such joy caressed each thought

Such love I’d never dreamed to find

I knew this fish was caught


Feeling life’s struggle start to fade

Feeling the ease of pain

I knew my debts through Christ were paid

As Truth began to reign


Through faith I’d shut the dragon’s jaw

Through sins willing confessed

What foolishness was thought before?

What had my soul possessed?


My heart released such glorious praise

Feeling life’s healing Flame

On Jesus’ face my eyes would gaze

Devoid of all past shame


All of a sudden it came to me

Through nothing I had done

By thought alone I’d bent my knee

Yet here was Christ God’s Son


Why should He choose this selfish soul?

Knowing my thoughts and schemes

Yet here I stand completely whole

Facing my wildest dreams.....

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.
