With Heading Sure


Thinking in love speaking in love

The love that comes from You

Deepening thoughts of high above

Raising one’s worldly view


Saying goodbye to worldly cares

Farewell to Satan’s charms

One leaves behind the fowlers snares

For love within Your arms


Unburdening heart and soul within

So light one seems to fly

Feeling so clean without shame’s sin

I felt obliged to buy


But Satan’s fool I’ll be no more

Now conscious of his schemes

I’ve seen The Truth, Life’s open Door

The answer to my dreams


Your gift of faith has opened eyes

Leading my heart to see

I’ll live no longer Satan’s lies

From death Christ set me free


I’ve learned to die, I’ll learn to live

Truly to understand

Through all the love You’ve had to give

I’ll never leave Your hand


I see the future crystal clear

I see the turning tide

The dove-like cloud soon to appear

To call Your faithful bride


Afraid no more of death’s dark vale

My future’s more than bright

With love’s strong Wind to fill my sail

My heading’s for The Light.....

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.
