Acts in Progress

Acts in progress.....

The bible has a lot to say

So much for man to see

Since Jesus’ Spirit seeks today

To live in you and me


Did God not say, within man’s heart?

The Truth would come to stay?

That all in Christ would play a part

Does that not mean today?


Indeed! God’s word goes marching on

Throughout this present age

Like Matthew, Mark, like Luke and John

We too may write a page


So those to come may take a look

At deeds we had to bring

We’ll join our brothers in the book

That glorifies our King


We need to learn from past mistakes

From all who’ve served before

To show in Christ which road one takes?

Towards the narrow door


But first we too must be of light

Make war on sin and shame

The world may see, then man just might

Be led to do the same


For most are blind and cannot tell

They see through Satan’s eyes

Deceived! They’re on the road to hell

Because of self and lies


They must receive God’s precious wine

Life’s Truth with all the facts

In all we do, Jesus must shine

“Within God’s book of acts”.....

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.
