Christ Inside


You know it’s not from what you do

Of knowing words or things

But if or not inside of you

Resides the King of kings


The living Christ has saved your soul

The Truth has made you see

Your Saviour’s blood has made you whole

And set your spirit free


As Lord! He’s in your heart today

Changing your worldly view

So others see and find The Way

Through Light shining in you!


His love’s transformed your selfish soul

Your fresh cleansed heart to smile

While helping others find life’s goal

Walking the extra mile


You feel His hand, hear his voice

Obedience is your law

Serving others has been your choice

Since Jesus knocked your door  


Now God’s directing from inside

Through you; His mouth and hand

Others to see you as a guide

Towards The Promised Land


You’ve nailed your sin upon the tree

By taking up your cross

You bow to sin no more the knee?

 Regardless of the loss


You seek for guidance from above

Controlling what you say

Seeking to walk in constant love

Along God’s chosen way…..

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.
