Why Worry

Why Worry


God is great, doing wondrous things

No foe against can stand

Our soul’s made safe beneath His wings

And life’s within His hand


In Jesus, God’s nature’s revealed

His promises take form

His mighty power man’s faithful shield

To ward against the storm


Who can one’s heart from Jesus sever?

Who can one’s joy abate?

If true love endures forever

Nothing can thus frustrate


Nothing can take us from His hand

Laughter will never cease

Through faith in Him we’ll understand

And reap eternal peace


All God’s treasures will Jesus share

In Heaven we’ll dwell as one

Who should worry, why should we care?

Safe in The Father’s Son


Walking with Jesus night and day

Who can His love deny?

What could on earth one’s hope dismay?

Flying His standard high


God’s Truth within God’s Fire without

Present where ere we go

How can we fail how can we doubt

Beneath life’s righteous flow


Walk by faith God’s chosen Way

In strength and with good cheer

Stand firm until the youngest day

With Jesus always near.....

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.
