Recalling Jonah


Let’s help our neighbour find The Door

That leads to life and love

Consider others more and more

Whilst on The Way above


Let wisdom speak to those still blind

Those deaf to Heaven’s Word

Help bring peace to a troubled mind

Spreading The Gospel heard


Share Heaven’s Truth with all we see

To those on every street

Obey The Lord set bound souls free

To sit at Jesus’ feet


For once we too were just like these

Deceived as Satan’s fools

Wandering blundering self to please

Living by self-made rules


Down hell’s dark road we walked by night

Seeking amidst the fray

Hoping to find our heart’s delight

Chasing shadows by day


We walked and talked as neighbours here

In stinking filth and shame

Before we learned God to fear

Trusting in Jesus’ name


By grace we’re saved loved and clean

Our souls are Heaven bound

Should not we help and intervene

Where “Life” is not yet found


Recalling Jonah’s awesome plight

His troubles on the way

Let us not wait till bleached and white

Let’s spread The Truth today!.....

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.
