Love Worth Seeking.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Does your heart feel now like crying?

Have you God’s law transgressed?

Do you almost feel like dying?

You feel so much distressed


Can as you are, seek Jesus’ face?

Can you share your thought within?

Or are you so much in disgrace?

Festooned in stench of sin


Do you think the Lord doesn’t know?

Your God’s too blind to see

You’re so afraid, you just can’t go

For Him to set you free


Do you think your sin’s so severe?

God’s grace is not that great

Your shameful state’s so hell near

True love can’t tolerate


Did the love of Heaven not display?

God sacrificed His Son

Who rose again that we can pray

To see our battle’s won


Did the death of Jesus not suffice?

The Father still want more!

Does He need a greater sacrifice?

To close death’s gaping jaw


For Christ declared, death’s lost its sting

His stripes paid ailments price

Salvation’s found beneath His wing

Please follow my advice


Into God’s presence bend your knee

Your heart and soul

Remaining there till grace sets free

You feel the love that’s real…..

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.
