I've So Much More

I've So Much More


You’ve known me in my sinful state

The selfish tears I’ve cried

Knowing that I’d appreciate

Beneath Your wings to hide


In You; my God I’ve faith and hope

I’ve trust beyond compare

With You, I’ll live I’ll thrive I’ll cope

For You are everywhere


Shelter from fire, icy gale

Safety within Your hand

Boldly I’ll walk the shadowed vale

Faithful life’s trials to stand


I’m blessed beyond my wildest dream

Far more than just alive

With cup brim full from Heaven’s Stream

Life’s storms I will survive


Beyond where countless wait to die

Beyond the realm of time

I’ll find beyond where eagles fly

The sweetness of sublime


I know man’s grave is not the end

Nor this short spell we see

With You my God as Lord now friend

I’m flying high and free


Leaving behind this world’s alarms

Leaving trouble and strife

Awaits for me with open arms

Love, peace and endless life


So death, is no concern to me

I’ve greater things to do

Serving here in liberty

Learning; my God, through You!…..

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.
