True and faithful remain but few

When Heavenís Lamp seems dim

When God will see what man will do

And whoíll stand true to Him

Itís good to wait with this in mind

Until The Lord returns

Seeking His strength, always to find

His Flame inside still burns

Too oft itís never quick enough

The Lord seems out of touch

We turn once more to worldly stuff

When waiting gets too much

Did Christ not come to set us free?

Set broken hearts aglow

Does faith not cause blind eyes to see?

Thereís nowhere else to go?

Our time is in the Saviourís hand

Each second night and day

When this we learn to understand

The Lord can have His Way

For hearts to change, souls to ignite

Can sometimes take a while

While patience, brings The Fatherís Light

True faith; will see Him smile

The Lord our God is never late

His timing never wrong

Miracles come to those who wait

God only knows how long

Receive with grace, the time Godís sent

Each moment Heavenís blessed

For life, our service is the rent

While patience......... stands the test..Ö

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.
