Still to Be Fpond

Still to Be Found

 

Seek truth in life’s most crooked streams

When deepest wells have dried

Seek out the flow of long lost dreams

The spring of love’s tears cried

 

Follow The Light tracking its course

Here and far off lands

Finding in truth life’s fountain source

In Jesus’ mighty hands

 

Countless before have tried and lost

Many will err and stray

Many have land and sea both crossed

To fall along The Way

 

What did they do, why is it so?

What was their shameful crime?

Troubles follow, where souls may go

Even ahead of time

 

Yet look into the eyes of love

Take score of what you see

Consult The Father high above

And heed His wise decree

 

Obey complete The Lord’s command

Regardless how it seems

Then reap the harvest long since planned

Beyond your wildest dreams

 

By grace and by true faith we stand

By blood our battle’s won

Yet through obedience understand

The love of Christ God’s Son

 

So take to heart all Jesus said

Receive His bread and wine

Take up your place behind The Head

Be grafted in The 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.
