Now and Forever


You’ve turned your back to wanton sin

Turning your face above

You’ve sought your God in Jesus’ name

Who’s filled you with His love


Would you believe there’s so much more?

Though taking bread and wine

Yet once you’ve entered Christ The Door

There’s unity divine


We feel His presence, hear His voice

God’s will become so real

Because we’ve made The Son our choice

The Father sets His Seal


The Seal of God life’s Precious Hope

God’s promised Guarantee

How could in life I ever cope?

Without life’s Help in me


At first it’s strange to know He’s there

Fire burning within

With grace, Heaven has come to share

Power to combat sin


Knowing you’ll know the same as I

This hope this awesome love

Knowing you too will never die

But rise with me above


Can you begin to understand?

With heart no longer stone

We’ll walk with Jesus hand in hand

And be no more alone


Thank God its real praise God it’s true

Forever and a day

Jesus’ love for me and you

Will never fade away.....

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.
