Too often in life we see things

But spare no thought at all

When troubles come on eagle wings

Witnessing our fall


We cast aside so much in life

Finding it such a shame

When that same something brings us strife

As though we weren’t to blame


Who use spiritual barbed wire?

With sword of faith in hand

Will overcome trials of fire

And learn to understand


We see in truth the Bible’s right

God’s Word is never wrong

Teaching walking in Truth & Light

We learn a different song


A song we sing when times are bad

When darkness clouds the mind       

When heart and soul becomes so sad

In tears, we walk as blind


Hesitant, we stumble a while

Rubbing our eyes with care

Till once again we start to smile

Seeing God everywhere


Love’s eyes can see love’s ears hear

We know then where we are

Wisdom teaches not to fear

That help is never far


The Word of God is always true

His promises will stand

Through faith made free to me and you

Within The Saviour’s hand …..

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.
