Separate to Elavate


Through life we must negotiate

The mount of God to scale

Who’ll separate to elevate

Who’ll flee their self-made jail?


Who’ll seize the option Heaven gives?

Accept The Saviour’s love

Receive their strength through He who lives

And walk to rise above


Regardless what one’s neighbours do?

What friends or family say?

Consider why Christ died for you

Why Jesus calls today


He’s calling you He’s calling me

His arms stretch open wide

Still breaking chains, setting us free

To join His chosen bride


Walk close to God when storms abound

Watch Jesus’ mighty hand

Look up and feel His arms surround

His love to understand


He knows our ins He knows our outs

He knows our in-betweens

He knows when children doubt their doubts

When darkness intervenes


Cry out to Christ where now you are

Receive your soul’s desire

Hold fast the hand that’s never far

Who’s Spirit comes with fire


He’s here He’s there He’s everywhere

With love with saving grace

No further than a silent prayer

From all who’ll seek His face…..

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.
