Where Will Resides


Have you enquired of God today?

Have you sought Jesus’ face?

Your peaceful life’s in disarray

You’re walking in disgrace


Beware of Satan’s cunning lies

When turmoil daunts your night

Will Christ not open wide your eyes?

And send God’s promised Light


Will to reside life’s facts to learn

Where true repentance reigns

It’s not too late from sin to turn

So long as breath remains


Is God not One; of selfless love?

Can God not be your friend?

Take heart by faith seek God above

Allow your knee to bend


I too was in that state of fear

I too was walking dead

But Jesus paid that I may hear

And turn my wayward head


Stretch forth Christ your wavering hands

Reach out and touch His own

Take comfort that He understands

And wants your heart of stone


To change to give you life instead

To give to you His all

Your torment; in this world to end

And cease your dreadful fall


Be bold, be strong, be filled with cheer

Let darkness now depart

Let love remove your every fear

Let Jesus in your heart.....

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.
