A Sure Venture


Your plans my God I may not know

I may not comprehend

Yet where You lead and where I go

You’ll be as Lord and friend


So take my heart make mine Your will

Hold fast my hand this day

With love and grace my cup refill

To walk Your chosen way


Replenish all the devil stole

Refine the heart you hold

Whilst quenching here Your servant’s soul

Make humble strong and bold


To serve my King and serve your bride

To turn from wayward sin

To help Your sheep not yet inside

To find The Way within


Within your hand I’m safely stored

My heart and soul is well

For is it not Your will my Lord

To save this child from hell


Just why it is, and why its me

Perhaps I’ll never know

But Jesus died to set me free

And make me white as snow


I may not know Your plans as yet

But Lord I know Your love

And certainly I won’t regret

Life’s journey up above


With You; this venture’s more than sure

Amongst Your chosen few

For You are good, Your motives pure

You’re righteous through and through.....

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.
