Obey a Win

Obey a Win


The cross seemed such a foolish way

For Christ to set us free

But when obedience wins the day

Man’s heart The Truth will see


We see true love can conquer all

When love becomes our view

Through grace; in use, we’ll never fall

With virtue standing true


Still many ways we walk are wrong

Though deep inside we burn

Obedience stays an alien song

Not few refuse to learn


We’ve heard of God’s eternal wrath

Of Heaven’s righteous Way

Choosing instead the devil’s path!

Like fools, we disobey


Obedience often times can cost

We’ll sacrifice instead

Like deaf blind fools we stumble lost

And live as walking dead


Oh God; let darkness now depart

Let disobedience flee

Let wisdom reign within the heart

Of those who fail to see


Through Christ we learn to know Your will

How souls can flee the grave

But if we disobey You still

There’s no one else to save


Let Christ’s obedience make us wise

Let love convict the soul

Let Godly fear, lay wide our eyes

To score life’s winning goal.....

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.
