Joyful Content and Happy


Can anyone be more content?

More happier than I

Upon this sphere of torment

Where all that lives must die


I’m awesome rich through faith made wise

Joyful beyond compare

Knowing I’ll rise through Paradise

Eternal life to share


Great is God, Christ Jesus His Son

Wondrous His Ghost unseen

Great is having life’s battles won

Walking in joy serene


God’s precious love’s now truly mine

Through grace I’ve seen The Light

With closest Friend God’s Lamb divine

I’m walking day and night


So unafraid am I today

Content this life to live

Happy to walk Salvation’s Way

With that which God will give


His promises are ever true

His Word will never fail

What each now sows will reap their due

Along life’s chosen trail


I’m sure through Christ to win the prize

Certain of Love’s reward

Since God opened my blinded eyes

To see His Son as Lord


Rising with Christ through Heaven’s Door

Perfect from head to toe

Wiser than all lost friends before

Richer than every foe…..

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.
