Give God a Ring
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

   Give God a ring

God wants to talk to you and me

He says to use the phone

To dial, we need to bend the knee

And speak to Him alone

 

God’s phone is Jesus’ gift of prayer

A gift He chose to give

That we may call from anywhere

And ask The Way to live

 

No switchboard needs to put us through

Direct; we all can call                                 Jn.16:26

When Jesus died for me and you.              Lk.23:45

God took away the wall                             Eph.2:14

 

A line to God is always free

No matter when we ring

So try Him now and soon you’ll be

Connected to The King

 

There’s none too bad to ring the Lord

No one too young or old

No one can say they can’t afford

No one is placed on hold

 

No woman’s chid receives a bill

It doesn’t cost a dime

Just talk until you’ve had your fill

No need to watch the time

 

The Lord calls oft His children too

Always we can rejoice

Although His face is not in view

We hear and know His voice

 

God’s gift is free to one and all

No need for you to fear

If when you hear The Father call

Answer “Yes Lord I’m here”.....

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.
