Eternity in the Making


Where shadows cloud The righteous path

Where darkness hides The Way

Many will face eternal wrath

Countless will rue today


But where there’s Light of God displayed

Where Truth has come alive

Darkness will shrink shadows will fade

And souls will richly thrive


Eternal love is ours to share

So no one seeks in vain

The facts of life are everywhere

The Truth’s revealed quite plain


Eternity, we help to make

According to our seed

Depending on the road we take

The life we choose to lead


What future are we heading for?

What wind is in your sail?

Is joy beyond that distant shore?

Or tears when we fail?


Wisdom would seek the far and wide

Would seek for grace and love

Would bid God’s Son to shine inside

Guiding to life above


Through faith blind eyes receive their sight

Through Christ God’s Lamb on high

We learn to see through Heaven’s Light

Beyond the day we die


Rid hearts of self, of wanton lust

Rid souls of errant hate

Before your flesh turns into dust

Sealing your endless fate.....

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.
