A Word to the Faithful


Some prosper through the work they’ve done

Or blessed in other ways

They’ll serve in truth our Father’s Son

Righteously all their days


These Shepherds no one should forget

Who show God’s love and care

Who have their heart quite firmly set

God’s flock their gift to share


They’ll bend their knee they’ll bend there back 

Their sleeves, they’ll roll up tight

They’ll suffer self when others lack

To glorify The Light


Standing when all around them fall

Remaining Jesus true

They’ve heard their Saviour’s trumpet call

That changed their worldly view


Valiant soldiers of the cross

Through Jesus born-again

Who care not if they suffer loss

Or bear another’s pain


We see them here observe them there

Planting their righteous seed

We’ve ministers now everywhere

Who truly have a need


God’s reckoning yet may soon arise

With such tremendous speed

When righteousness with open eyes

Will judge man’s word and deed


The scriptures tell us all too plain

That all may understand

Give free but not for selfish gain

As Heaven always planned.....

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.
