Love Sharing


Coming from every walk of life

In search of love and grace

We forage in this world of strife

In hope to see Your face


To seek the pardon of our God

To live Your chosen Way

Not always will You spare Your rod

Or keep us from affray


Through faith, in life we need to grow

However much we lose

Wherever stormy winds may blow

We’re free to always choose


When persecution comes our way

Temptations day and night

Not always will we win the day

Or see the foe in flight


Having Your Son as living Lord

Though drinking Heaven’s Dew

We still may live to feel the sword

In service of the few


Throughout the years in serving Christ

That He be glorified

Many their lives have sacrificed 

Many have cruelly died


Worldly honours are less than rare

Riches accompany few 

Jesus’ presence is everywhere

With strength to stand anew


Whilst serving doing Heaven’s will

Until we rise above

Darkness may come, may even kill

Through sharing Jesus’ love…..

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.
