Conceive the Truth

Conceive the Truth


Through selfishness man’s heart is blind

Through lust minds are misled

Redemption’s Way seems hard to find

As though we’re walking dead


Since Adam’s time we lose our way

We flounder fall and fail

In times of storm we’re led astray

Like ships without a sail


The worldly wise behave as fools

Beauty remains skin deep

Silver gold and precious jewels

For long; is not to keep


Flooding lives with untold sorrow

What else may treasures bring?

Here today and gone tomorrow

Like winter snow in spring


So now instead we must be wise

Take score of life at hand

Allow the past to open eyes

And truly understand


For when God’s Truth the mind conceives

When souls begin to see

When Calvary; the heart believes

Christ’s blood has set us free


It’s time at Jesus’ feet to sit

Time to hear love sing

Receive wisdom bit by bit

Beneath God’s healing wing


Let darkness fade where light belongs

Let praise be heard above

Let God receive our heart-felt songs

From souls aflame with love.....

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.
