It Is Well

It Is Well


Unworthy of the time of day

Estranged to loving arms

To endless life I’d barred The Way

As slave to Satan’s charms


However gross sin’s festering sores

However harsh life’s blows

However long life’s raging wars

The depths within me knows


My future’s greater than the past

Greater than all before

So mighty is The First & Last

Giving faith so sure


My trust is in The Living Christ

Hoping in Jesus’ name

By faith in whom God sacrificed

I’m free of death and shame


Onward upward with He who’s Lord

Rising each day anew

Fighting thrusting with Heaven’s Sword

With victory plain in view


Great was the wrenching of my soul

The heartaches joy and pain

Seeking to reach my unseen goal

Knowing life’s not in vain


Great is The Lord I love and fear

Mighty God’s Living Word

God’s grace God’s love always near

Since first His voice was heard


I know my soul has come alive

My spirit free of hell

Now day and night I live and thrive

For Christ’s made all things well…… Michael

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.
