Made Righteous.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

I know my life is plain to view

Each thought You can hear

Knowing my God, bein known in You

I have no need to fear


How wonderful to understand

Your selfless love for man

That all the world within Your hand

Is only true love’s plan


Because I turned to Christ Your Son

I’m well and truly saved

My precious soul’s eternally won

Your righteousness has craved


Loved, rich, so gloriously free

With Heaven’s king,

 as friend

Your smiling face I too will see

When death has found its end


My God sweet Lord I’m so enthralled

Although I don’t deserve

Yet by You grace I too was called

The living Christ to serve


The Spirit of my God divine

Has deemed within to dwell

Now all power of Yours is mine

To free and keep from hell


Most awesome God tremendous King

The Key to Heaven’s Door

I feel as if on eagle’s wing

I’ll soar forever more


Up and beyond this world so high

In perfect victory

One day with You I’ll surely fly

To share eternity.....

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.
