Restoration Valleys


Who know The Father’s ever near

Their Saviour’s always there

Need ever walk or live in fear

Nor wander in despair


Where Christ is Lord, His Spirit; Guide

Where wisdom paves The Way 

The love God’s planted deep inside

Will always win the day


Regardless where this life may lead

Though dangers come and go

When love has been one’s chosen seed

We’ll harvest what we sow


Praise God for depths throughout the earth

Valleys of inner thought

Where righteousness can come to birth

Where wisdom’s learnt and taught


Praise God for depths of solitude

Ravines of rugged stone 

Where life’s directions when reviewed

May reach to heights unknown


In windy storms torrential rains

Through blizzards of despair

Praise God for true life’s growing pains

For power these to bear


In faith in truth keep going on

Trusting, climb higher still

Believing in Christ God’s Lamb and Son

Doing The Father’s will     


Whatever now’s in store for me

What portion life may bring

Through Christ, sweet songs of victory

Life’s endless joy I’ll sing…..

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.
