God's Calling

God's Calling


The world revolves in doom and gloom

With malice hate and spite

What’s happened to the upper room?

Christ’s church of hope and light


Still countless walk the devil’s road

As countless have before

Whilst but a few give up their load

For keys to Heaven’s door         


Misery’s flowing everywhere

Debauchery wears a crown

Still ignorant a silent prayer

Will tear hell’s strongholds down


When born again we should be wise

Two thousand years ahead

We ought to teach, to open eyes               

And raise the walking dead


We’ve much received, we’ve much to share

So much the world give

Spiritual drink spiritual fair

For those yet lost to live


We need to pray, to fast and cry

Like saints before have cried

If Jesus’ fold’s to multiply

The bride should go outside


She needs to rise her light to shine

Her calling to complete

She needs to add into The Vine

Lost souls from off  the street


Feed man woman feed each lost child

Gather both flock and wheat

Until the last is reconciled

And safe at Jesus’ feet ……

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.
