Not Just Words


God’s Kingdom’s not of tales we hear

Of clichés we repeat

But selfless love through Godly fear

Serving at Jesus’ feet


Failure is not a neighbour’s fault

Nor any the foe we fight

But how we live sprinkled with salt

Dividing Heaven’s light


Spending ourselves on soles still lost

Offering selfless love

Giving our all counting no cost

Paving The Way above


God’s Kingdom’s found on bended knees

Through faith in Jesus Christ

When Truth we seek when God we please

When self we’ve sacrificed


When holding fast to Heaven’s plough

Revealing love and care

Planting good seed and showing how

The lost can gain life’s share


When self to Christ we truly give

We set more captives free

More dead can rise can learn to live

And teach the blind to see


Till born again till Heaven bound

Endless God’s praise to sing

Helping others to holy ground

Though Jesus Christ our King


What less would God now have us do?

Since life is yours and mine

Since drinking of The Morning Dew

Grafted in Heaven’s Vine.....

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.
