Life Investment


Invest your talent and your love

Invest in holy ground

Invest in Christ God’s Lamb above

Where dividends abound


Invest through life in tilling soil

In planting seeds of light

In sheep, in wheat, in lamps in oil

In righteous robes of white


Invest your silver jewels and gold

In endless life sublime

But most of all if truth be told

Invest in Christ your time


Invest your soul in Heaven’s Lord

Your heart and soul in prayer

Throughout this life, till death afford

Your selfless love to share


Invest the wealth The Father’s blessed

Invest in fruits divine

Let wisdom reign with grace invest

In Heaven’s humble Vine


In service of the chosen few

Wash now your neighbour’s feet

Invest today through birth anew

In joining God’s elite


Invest in what no eye has seen

What can’t be bought or sold

In righteous pearls for faithful queen

In crowns of rarest gold


Invest in He who’s never far

In sinless blood once poured

Give all you have and all you are

To life’s rewarding Lord.....

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.
