A Journey of Faith


For some it’s short, for others long

Depending on The Way

Yet each may sing the self same song

Of “Trust Him and obey”


Displayed beyond the realm of time

Beyond man’s wildest dream

Trust practiced is love sublime

An act of faith supreme


Obey The Lord of righteousness

Trust Jesus whilst we might

Past transgressions through Christ confess

And walk within The Light


Let not this life be lived in vain

Let’s play no more the clown

Let love instead be seen to reign

Let wisdom wear a crown


Consult The Lord in all you do

Reflect before we speak

Consider Christ God’s Lamb & Son

All seven days a week                           


For far beyond the great divide

Where time becomes no more

God promises to be our Guide

Through time & Heaven’s Door


Our Father knows the future now

He knows your wayward past

He knows when to His Son we bow

We’ll harvest peace at last


The place for you and I is here 

The time is right today

God’s calling loud through Jesus clear

To trust Him and obey…..

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.
