Life's Dream Is Real
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Life's Dream Is Real

 

Likened to Christ must be our aim

Must be our driving force

To save us from eternal flame

To keep our souls on course

 

Salvation’s found at Jesus’ feet

Beneath that dreadful tree

Able to make a child complete

With faith to set them free

 

So like God’s Son in every way

Is what we’ll seek to be

While through His counsel night and day

The truth of self we see

 

Believing Jesus’ true report

Accepting facts first hand

The inner man is truly taught

And learns to understand

 

Obedience; is The Way on high

Humility and love

When finally self has learned to die

We’ll see life’s path above

 

Through grace of God’s and Jesus’ life

Obedient to the last

Bonds we’ll sever with love’s sharp knife

While Satan’s dye is cast

 

The devil’s lot is more than sure

Hell’s pit and fire awaits

But we who death of self endure

Will enter Heaven’s Gates

 

When pleasing God becomes one’s goal

Life’s object most supreme

Obtaining refuge for our soul

Is more than just a dream.....

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.
