God Wants.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

God wants us live, truly to live

To live and truly thrive

That each of us should each forgive

And through all storms survive


God wants the world to understand

The meaning of His love

To show through love He truly planned

The Way to life above


The facts of life He wants man see

The truth of Christ His Son

Who chose to die on Calvary

For victory to be won


God wants more sinners to repent

Turn from their sinful ways

Accept The Gift Heaven has sent

And set the world ablaze


God gives His love to all the earth

So rich free and pure

So now we too may bring to birth

Such love that will endure


God wants to give us everything

For nothing in return

Only the tad we choose to bring

Will raise more love to burn


Deeper higher than all before

Wider than ever seen

That we may enter Heaven’s door

As Jesus’ faithful queen


God wants not one; should live in vain

No one should die alone

But rise to live to live again

In houses of living stone 1Pe.2:5…..

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.
