True Stability

True Stability


We all accept to frequent schools

Expect to learn some trade

But seeking God, obeying rules

Seldom are efforts made.


Like eagles soaring on the breeze

We’re deaf to Heaven’s call

We feel so free, ourselves to please

Like calves fresh from the stall


Such folly, far from being wise

Can bring no swift release

For calves attract so many flies

Denying blissful peace


As Satan who can see man’s flight

May send his demon host

May steal from souls the will to fight

Without The Holy Ghost


We need an anchor; strong and true

A Rock; on which to hold

With life’s vision in constant view

To live as Jesus told


Building on that which cannot move

Upon The Truth to stand

Knowing His Word our God will prove

Through Christ His righteous hand


What can the world, when God we trust?

What force has fellow man?

Heaven and hell would turn to dust

If God could fail His plan


The plan for those in Jesus’ hand

For those in Satan’s claws

The former will see The Promised Land

The latter hell’s gaping jaws.....

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.
