Conflicts of the Mind


Many a person thought insane

Lives often void of care

Not always are life’s conflicts plain

Nor strategies laid bare


The devil’s still a lying cheat

He’ll occupy the mind

Manipulating most discreet

The feeble lost and blind


We need to know we need to see

Discern a servant’s rights

Believe The Lord for victory

Not lose so many fights


Yet though The Truth’s in black on white

Too rarely is it read

So seldom does man put to flight

The one who’d strike us dead


Best lean on God one’s troubled soul

Trust God your failing heart

Trust Christ to save to make one whole

To set from harm apart


While Satan’s out to cheat and kill

Have faith in Christ’s report

Pay heed to God to Heaven’s will

Take capture every thought


Put on the armour of The Lord

The helm of Heaven’s light

Take up in hand your trusted sword

With breast plate shining bright


Come to The Lord sweet troubled child

Trust in God’s Lamb & Son

Turn from your sin be reconciled

And see life’s battles won.....

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.
