The Father's Will


Thank God I’m safe I’m in The ark

Thank God my eyes now see

Living no longer in the dark

Careless and fancy free


Conforming to the devil’s will

To Satan’s cunning plan

Lustful seeking to get my fill

Of all displayed to man


Watching the world each day revolve

Walking the path of fools

Extravagant with no resolve

Breaking life’s many rules


Thanks be to God for grace divine

Displayed on Calvary’s Tree

Making salvation yours and mine

Through Jesus’ bravery


So effortless it seems to sound

So simple its advance

Transfiguring to higher ground

Is not a choice by chance


Obedient through Jesus Christ

Dying to flesh and bone

The Father sees each sacrifice

We lay at Heaven’s throne


Consulting God in all our ways

His righteous will above

Then to our feet throughout our days

His light will shine in love


We’ve nothing more or less to do

But love care with tender care

To God on high to neighbours too

The Father’s will to share.....

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.
