I Waant My Gd

I Want My God


I want my God to change my mind

To change my selfish ways

I want The Truth my life unwind

To lift my inward gaze


I want my God Your living Christ

I want Your risen Son

The precious Lamb You sacrificed

Complete what love’s begun


I want my God to always please

To love, faithful to serve

Receive life’s crown with Heaven’s keys

And not what I deserve


I want my God my life to change

My wayward man to die

My wanton self so rearrange

To see Your face on high


I want my God forever more

To be before my eyes

So far beyond where eagles soar

I want with Christ to rise


I want my God to know You more

I want Your Way to see

Ascend and walk through Heaven’s Door

Completely whole and free


I want my God to live Your will

Walk graceful in Your sight

Your wondrous love my heart to fill

Flooding my soul with Light


I want my God to live as planned

Your blessings always pour

I want to dwell The Promised Land

And never want no more.....

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.
