Be Still & Know

While Jesusí few are Spirit led

Godís Truth is all but late

Yet still so oft we hear it said

ďBe patient now and waitĒ

Who run ahead or lag behind

Walk not in Jesusí near

The blind begin to lead the blind

To foolish doubt and fear

Satan through fear and doubt will steal-

The Truth Heaven would give

Be still; know well that God is real

And in His strength we live

Yet still we try to go our way

The path we think is right

Until we realize one day

The Lord is out of sight

The Lord we learned to love and trust

Has left us high and dry

Feeling our faith has turned to dust

We faint and start to die

The devilís job is to deceive

Heíll kill heíll lie and cheat

His evil thoughts; we oft believe

Can herald swift defeat

He knows the time when faith is low

When manís not far from sin

Stumbling blindly against the flow

Then like a flood heís in!

Be still allow The Lord to guide

His love is always true

Itís we; whoíve left the Saviourís side

And think Heís out of view.....†

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.
