You May Think You're Sound

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


To slide from grace can be so quick

Although we think we're sound

The devil uses every trick

To seize and keep us bound


From death and hell to seek The Way

To give us peace of mind

It's difficult with guilt to pray!

For help through life to find


Each day you're drifting more from Him

You feel you've let God down

The future's looking rather dim

Depressed you sit and frown


One thing we all must understand

Regardless how we feel

Take each day the Bible in hand

Till once again God's real


While Love and Grace remains The Door

Standing with arms held wide

Seek entrance now in faith once more

Bid Christ as Lord inside


Best give no thought, what others think

No one; can throw the stone

Though Satan wants to watch you sink

And claim you for his own


Come back to God sweet soul today

Don't sit there, nursing doubt

It's then; the devil has his way

Have faith to cast him out


Return through Christ walk free and bold

Take refuge from the storm

Come take your place in Heaven's fold

Jesus is nice and warm.....Michael P. Johnson

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.
