With Jesus Waking

With Jesus Waking


With God, with Jesus waking up

Lord of all creation

Filling adorations' cup

What an awesome sensation


Salvation, knowing, embracing

Knowing Life's King above

Today, all tomorrows, facing

Such astonishing love


Imagine this, understanding

Heaven wants this for you

Conferring not commanding

Birth, beginning anew


Leaving demonic filth  behind

Casting hell's past aside

Let faith, Heaven's carpet unwind

With Jesus to abide


Knowing one's inner desire

Shameful, we were before

Cleansed with His Spirit and fire

Love! opens True Life's Door


Who's prepared, priming for winning?

Who'll answer Heaven's call?

Who's busy presently sinning?

With no idea  at all


It's not the time for fools now

Playing a children's game

But at God's feet to humbly bow

In Jesus' holy name


Live, for tomorrow, forever

Hate, what Heaven hates

Be truthful, righteously clever

Enter Life's pearly gates.....

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.
