Can One Be Sure
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Can one be sure of anything?

Amidst the vast unknown?

A living God, perpetual King?

An everlasting throne?


Who’d consider such, to believe?

Ponder, even  pursue?

Somewhere, thoughtful somehow,  conceive

Evaluate, as true?


After long deliberation

Considering end to end

Devoid of  hesitation

God’s Word I recommend


Records  exiting to every age

Inconceivably true

Information on every page

For everyone and you


Where Father, Son, a Spirit’s to see

Author Himself, is there

Dictating facts with Guarantee

Creation! all to share


All should answer LIFE’S VITAL Call

No soul, need be afraid

Where Grace is given where Truth is all

Where total Love’s displayed


So many times this book I’ve read

So many times I’ve  wept

So many times bowing my head

God’s unity is kept


So absolute sure am I

Christ is Life’s Door, Life’s Key

Unbelievers may laugh and die

Jesus has set me FREE…..

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.
