The Worthy Bride
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


     The worthy bride

What does The Father think at night?

How does He spend His day?

Most children bring Him no delight

In what they do and say


The time we waste when nothing’s done

Although we’ve heard His voice

What should The Father tell His Son?

The Bridegroom’s shameful choice


No matter where on earth we go

However far or wide

Each maiden there just loves to show

She’ll make a worthy bride


Still many who on Jesus wait

Forsake their risen Lord

Daily feeling it’s growing late

Becoming easily bored


Looking else where for something new

Fresh apples for the eye

They take a bite they champ they chew

And wonder why they die


The bride of Jesus must be pure

Must be as virgin snow

To be a wife standing sure

Wholesome from head to toe


There’s no more time to sit around

Once Jesus makes His choice

For only those are Heaven bound

Who’ll hearken to His voice


A church to stand must first be wise

Must search the world outside

In one accord she must arise

As Jesus’ worthy bride.....

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.
