Love in Motion (1)


When love lays wide through Christ our door

Whatever fools may say

Upholding God’s eternal law

Will surely win the day


Love is the way to self demise

The root to live again

The source through which true prayer can rise

To Jesus Christ’s amen


Love is the plant from Heaven’s Seed

The kern of God on high

The fruit from which the world should feed

In order not to die


Love’s a fountain life’s bubbling spring

A stream to fill a sea

A tune to dance a song to sing

And to God’s heart the key


Love causes cups to overflow

Can lift a nation cursed

Can cause life’s dried up river flow

To quench the world of thirst 


God’s love to man has been made known

Calvary’s cross made clear

Through which by grace from Heaven’s throne

Salvation may appear


Does not God’s Lamb deserve our love?

Warrant our heartfelt praise?

Should not its fragrance rise above

Throughout our life long days


When love becomes our breath of air

Our drink our daily bread

Our God may use one anywhere

Even to raise the dead.....

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.
