Obedient to the Call

Obedient to the Call


Eternal burning, endless tears

Dark storms will rant and rage

Screaming cursing through endless years

In hell’s unbreakable cage


This is no legend filled with lies

Concocted tale of woe

For those who Christ as Lord despise

There’s but one place to go


Yet blessed are they with open ear

Who’s heart has eyes to see

The humble soul who’s learned to hear

The Truth that set’s us free


Our God is love awesome in might

Eternal is His day

Promising each a robe of white

Who’ll walk His chosen Way


Obedience bears its own reward

Where Heaven’s will resides

Where Christ God’s Son is seen as Lord

And selfless love abides


Loving The Lord loving His laws

Despising Satan’s lies

Will close hell’s dark foreboding jaws

To enter Paradise


Knowing The Truth seeing The Light

What fool would live a lie?

Continue still God’s way to fight

Within their sin to die


God loves us ‘ALL’ with perfect love

His arms are open wide

Calling sinners still high above

To change and come inside.....

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.
