Obey and Trust


Its God’s desire for us to live

To walk in peace and love

To have the guarantee He’ll give

For endless joy above


Who will ascend God’s holy hill?

Who can appease The Lord?

Who’ll accomplish His perfect will?

And life’s great boast afford


Who’ll on The Wind of Heaven Soar?

Who hears His guiding voice?

Receive God’s promise evermore

Enraptured to rejoice


Who’ll stand when others fall and fail?

Who’ll stand though death draws nigh

Who’ll fast and pray for those in jail

Heaven their souls to buy


Not with silver and not with gold

No jewel or precious thing

But true in spirit praying bold

Beneath Salvation’s Wing


Forgiving neighbour’s their every sin

Fulfilling Heaven’s law

Mercy for all mankind to win

So blessings of God may pour


With contrite heart and humble soul

Regarding not the past

Helping others to reach their goal

Before the trump's last blast


Truthful in word faithful in thought

Obedient to The King

Trusting in Jesus'  true report

Eternal praise to sing.....

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.
