I Want and Want


I want to change the way I think
Have thoughts as white as snow
My aching heart with God’s in sync
Within His love to grow


I want to be with Heaven right
To God The Father true
To walk with Christ, life's Guide and Light
Eternally in view


I want to live as Heaven planned
No more a fool astray
But walk with Jesus hand in hand
Throughout the youngest day


I want to know my Saviour more
To run to win life’s race
No longer break a single law
To see my Father’s face


I want to love souls plagued with hate
Still wayward lost in sin
I want their thoughts so elevate
They’ll pray Life’s Lamp within


I want the world completely free
With heart and soul aflame
The proudest soul to bend their knee
To serve in Jesus’ name


I want to love my neighbour more
My friends no longer lost
I want us enter Heaven's Door
Regardless of the cost


I want God’s face on mine to shine
Have Christ as life long friend
Be grafted firm within The Vine
Where all my wants will end…..

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.
