Grace Bestowed


Are you prepared to face life’s trials?

Before The living Lord

Accompany Jesus down church aisles

To flee the coming sword


Are you equipped with Christ to soar?

Beyond both time and space

To boldly knock on Heaven’s door

To meet God face to face


Are you prepared to die to live?

Tear down your house on sand

Receive the portion God will give

Through Jesus’ nail pierced hand


Many may answer no of course

Spiritual lost and blind

Failing to find life’s one true source

To heal their troubled mind


Are you prepared your life to change?

Through faith in Jesus Christ

Allow God’s Lamb to rearrange

Till self is sacrificed


Impossible for mortal man

Like foolish sheep astray

Rebellious to The Shepherd’s plan

To walk His chosen way


Its Heaven’s will, God’s great desire

To rescue from the pit

To save man’s soul from endless fire

A selfish life has lit


By grace bestowed from Heaven’s throne

The Promise from above

The Lord will roll away the stone

And change your heart with love.......

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.
