Life's Mountains.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

What did the mountain do or say?

That made you fail your climb

That made you turn another way

To slip and land in slime


That mountain wasn’t all that high

You could have help received

Could possibly the reason’s why

You haven’t quite believed!


What should God do when plagued with doubt?

Disbelieving His Son

When life’s temptation’s come about

You’ve no way out but run


Run how run where is left to hide?

Where on earth to flee

Without The living Christ inside

No prisoner’s ever free


Make no mistake you’re locked in jail

To something someone bound

Without some help, you’ll surely fail

To stand on solid ground


Arise, in faith trust in The Lord

To Heaven cry again

Will God not take His mighty sword?

And sever every chain


Just call on The One who made you

The King who loves to care

Return, rejoin His valiant few

Who’ll help your load to bear


No mountain’s ever high enough

No weight can keep us down

No enemy of greater stuff

Can rob us of life’s crown.....

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.
