A Soul In Love.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Deeper and deeper falling more

Closer and closer still

Higher, higher to God I’ll soar

Because of true love’s will


I love God because He loves me

Jesus because He cares

The Holy Ghost through whom I see

The fruit that true love shares


I love The Lamb on Heaven’s throne

The living One most wise

For coming in a heart of stone

For opening my eyes


Because He heard my tearful cry

Because His mercy’s real

Because He chose for me to die

And place on me His Seal


Because His eyes my soul can see

The secrets, in my heart

Because He came to set me free

To have a brand new start


Forgiven loved by grace approved

Now every day’s a thrill

How can my soul not now be moved?

How can my tongue be still?


How can my soul my God deny

How can my heart refuse?

How can one doubt and wonder why

I gladly share the news


He lives! He lives inside of me

With fire with grace and love

He lives my friend to set you free

To rise with Him above.....

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.
