Soul Status


Be still my soul in doubtless trust

Let faith become your guide

Let darkness fail and turn to dust

This side of life’s divide


Believe in God in Christ His Son

The cross where love’s displayed

Where man’s great fight for life was won

And wayward debts are paid


Rejoice dear soul in truth’s caress

In love’s unfailing care

Allow The Saviour richly bless

Through all He longs to share


Investing; in the soon to be

Accepting Heaven’s Word

Until the day we truly see

The promises we’ve heard


The living facts are never far

The facts we’ve come to learn

Before we join The Morning Star

World bridges need to burn


Defeat the emptiness within

The void of darkest night

Cast down the crown of wanton sin

And tread the Path of Light


God loves the sinner lost and blind

The sheep still led astray

He sees the heart each troubled mind

Walking hell’s twisted way


So rest assured repentant soul

Hold fast to grace divine

For Jesus’ blood has made you whole

And endless life is mine.....

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.
