Know My God.....

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

How wonderful it is to be
Within Salvation’s hand
With God in love, with eyes to see
Life’s facts to understand

The Truth to truly comprehend
To know one’s truly free
To know life’s Author as one’s friend
And have His Guarantee

To know He knows us in and out
As personal friend and guide
To teach us what this life’s about
He comes to live inside

As Comforter The Holy Ghost
Healer of heart and soul
Helper to pass the winning post
Scoring the winning goal

To see when wrong within His sight
To live to see His face
Upon my life He shines His light
In righteousness  and grace

This is The God I’ve learned to know
The God I’ve come to see
To know regardless where I go
He’s always there for me

To show me how to walk and live
However formally lost
To give and know He’ll also give
Regardless of the cost

That’s how it is to serve my God
How much I must agree
At times even to use the rod
In order that I see.....

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.
