Where Strife Is Meaningless.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


Blessings of Heaven are falling

On peoples everywhere

The almighty God is calling

Eternity to share

 

A life as no one’s known before

No sickness no more tears

Where endless blessing will outpour

Where joy replaces fears

 

Where laughter’s considered formal

Where peace is part of life

Miraculous power’s normal

Where meaningless is strife

 

Streets of gold lead everywhere

Silver will no one hoard

All food and clothing God will share

With those who love The Lord

 

Here and now living on earth

Loving The Lord each day

Sharing by grace a second birth

To walk God’s chosen Way

 

Knowing in whom we now believe

The reason why He died

Rising again that each receive

Perfection magnified

 

The place is here the times now

God’s glory fills the land

Let Jesus’ Promise you endow

The Truth to understand

 

Nothing to do nothing to pay

Receive all grace will give

Accept God’s love each night and day

Only believe and live.....

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.
