Love's The Way Above.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Everything good  love can afford

Nothing will come to waste

But always find its true reward

And warmly God embraced

 

When opportunity prompts a prize

So many of us stray

From love, we take our wily eyes

To fail and lose our way

 

Love is patient love is kind   1Cor.13:4

Does not envy or boast

But fallacy to think it’s blind

When from The Holy Ghost

 

Man’s need to love God knows too well

Love is His middle name

Through love He’ll guide, He’ll warn and tell

To keep one’s soul from shame

 

God often loves us silently

When truth brings growth of mind

Hating utmost violently

The filth that makes one blind

 

Our God is Lord of everything

Invisible and seen

When discord, devil’s hope to bring

True love will intervene

 

What can match its powerful strength?

When love is most divine

Heaven will go to any length

To make it yours and mine

 

Ask God my friend and love is yours

Be wise and use it well

It pleases God to open doors

And lock the one to hell…..

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.
