The devil says there’s been no change

Your life remains the same

You’re acting just a trifle strange

Believing Jesus’ name


But take your bible take a seat

Divide yourself in two

Let one be sat at Jesus’ feet

The other stand and view


I know it’s hard to do at first

Yet give it please a try

When then a few times you’ve rehearsed

You’ll cease to wonder why


First let the new man start to read

With old man looking on

From all you see, pay greatest heed

What’s leant of Christ God’s Son?


Exchanging places new with old

How swiftly you’ll agree

Explaining what the bible told

The old man still won’t see


There’s been a change, the old man’s gone

The new man’s found The Way

Life’s changing battle’s clearly won

And changed you’re sure to stay


Our mind the devil will confuse

Each strategy he’ll try

And yet he’s bound to always lose

When Christ is standing by


Christ stands by those with birth anew

Who’ve changed to robes of white

Who’ve changed their mind who’ve changed their view

To walk within The Light.....

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.
