Give God a Chance

        Give God a chance

You’ve troubled thoughts, life’s passing by

In deep distress you wish to die

Perhaps it’s happened all before

God; is knocking at your door


You falter round as though you’re blind

Troubled sleep troubled mind

Jesus can melt a heart of stone

And soothe a child alone


Are you convinced there’s no one there?

Do you believe He wouldn’t care?

Or is it doubt that God’s not true?

Ask Him now; to come to you


The way to God is through His Son

Regardless of the filth we’ve done

Yet only those who sin repent

Receive the promise true love’s sent


Jesus is true, believe and stand

Seek Him now whilst yet at hand

He’ll purge your soul of shameful sin

Bid Him now to come within


The blind who think that Christ’s a lie

Need just ask and let Him try

Allow The Truth to set you free

Then God my friend you’ll surely see


When still in doubt if Christ is true

There’s just one thing you need to do

Whisper “Lord Jesus give me sight

Send to me life’s guiding Light”


A humble heart on bended knee

The Lord will lead to victory

Pray God’s truth to dwell inside

Whisper “Jesus, be my guide”.....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.
