How To Serve.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

This is the way to serve my God

I must with Him agree

At times He’ll need to use the rod

In order that I see


I’m His servant when He is Lord

When holding fast His law

He’ll be The One who’ll wield the sword

When time becomes no more


Am I to wander to and fro?

Should I not with Him stay?

Asking where or not to go

So not to fall astray


If I’m to rise to life above

Should I not God obey?

To show through Him I truly love

And seek to walk His Way


Forever now I will abide

With He who paid the bail

He is The Groom I am His bride

Admitting when I fail


Am I not His is He not mine?

Is Christ God’s Word not true?

Does not my heart with His entwine?

When I His ways pursue


Never with Jesus will I fall

When truly in His hand

Obedient to His every call

Now that I understand


God’s Lamb has proved His love for me

As a Shepherd God’s sheep

Through faith in Christ I’ve learned to see

God’s promises He’ll keep.....

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.
