Smile and Smile Again


In blistering heat torrential rain

Struggling day and night

I’m smiling at the storm again

Fighting the righteous fight


What have I done or said so wrong?

That darkness wields its sword

Do troubles rise to make me strong?

So victory’s my reward


Will God not stretch His mighty arm?

Demand the wind be still

Direct the storms of life to calm

And bow to Heaven’s will


On Calvary’s cross is nailed my sin

My hope and faith is there

So now I know I’ll always win

Whilst Jesus’ road I share


Eternal King great Prince of peace

True Saviour Lord and friend

Creator God who’ll never cease

His children to defend


But am I in that state of grace?

Where heart and soul are free?

Finding myself within the place?

Where love would have me be


For still life’s storms are raging wild

Buffeting left and right

I pray my God, for this Your child

Turn darkness into Light


Let all I am be sacrificed

Let Satan wear a frown

Let hope and faith in Jesus Christ

Cause grace my life to crown......

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.
