Trusting Jesus

Trusting Jesus

 

Why do I do the things I do?

Utter the things I say

Letting the devil cloud my view

Walking his evil way

 

Too long has Satan kept me blind

Hindering from life’s goal

Whilst God can see my troubled mind

The aching of my soul

 

My suffering my deep distress

Hell’s cancer in my heart

My wayward past I must confess

And seek a brand new start

 

I know God wants the best for me

For this He sent His Son

I know He wants to set me free

From all my evil done

 

I need to change truly repent

Seek out life’s Guiding Light

While trusting whom The Father sent

To help me win the fight

 

So Lord my God now hear my prayer

Please hear these words I say

That I through Christ may reap life’s share

Regard my plea today

 

Consider this shameful heart O Lord

This wayward soul of sin

From Heaven, send Your flaming Sword

Consume the filth within

 

Cast down each stone of Satan’s tower

Lock tight demonic doors

Through faith I’m trusting Jesus power

Till in His arms I’m Yours.....

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.
