Contentment through Faith
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Contemtment through Faith


Doubting the things I failed to see

I laughed at those who tried

Most cynics of the world agree

Till Heaven dawns inside


When by God’s grace we see The Light

When truth reveals its own

Darkness is swiftly put to flight

Softening hearts of stone


Contentment is faith verified

Who can such joy explain?

That Jesus lived that Jesus died

To rise and live again


To realize that God is real

To know the bible’s true

To be aware to taste and feel

What darkness cannot view?


To know such peace is mine to hold

Such grace from Heaven’s free

Greater than silver jewels and gold

These eyes by faith can see


No longer lost, no longer blind

I’ve ceased to wonder why

Gone are the shadows of the mind

The doubts of days gone by


I know! The Lamb I know The Son

The King of kings on high

I know through Him with battles won

I’ve no fear to die


Christ won the war He conquered death

Bringing us joy and peace

Bestowing through faith life’s strength life’s breathe

Where tears and ailments cease.....

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.
