The Door of Love

The Door of Love

 

God’s calling from His holy hill

“Come climb to higher ground

My Door to life is open still

Where love and grace is found

 

Regardless of your filthy shame

How deep your wayward sin

Belief in Jesus’ in holy name

Eternal life’s to win

 

I’m calling all to come inside

Each nation here on earth

Be rid of doubt of foolish pride

Receive a second birth

 

Through Christ alone is life received

Beyond death’s gaping door

Knowing when Christ you have believed

Eternity’s before

 

Endless blessings infinite love

Beyond your wildest dreams

Treasures unknown wait each above

Flowing in endless streams

 

Life’s Door is Christ with arms held wide

With open hands to give

Calling sinners to come inside

As chosen bride to live

 

Regardless of your wicked state

Those near lost and afar

I’ll take your sorrows bear your weight

I’ll take you as you are

 

Leave the darkness walk in the Light

Vanquish worry and care

Come my children fight the good fight

Receive the victor’s share”.....

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.
