To Those Who Wait

We havenít gone to Heaven yet

Some doubt they ever will

Many a need must first be met

And Satanís out to kill

Who undermine demonic might

The devilís cunning lies

Is like a fool, devoid of light

And clearly not too wise

Some say lifeís yoke one has to bear

Is too intense for man

While strength in Christ is always there

While in His name we can

God gives power to those who wait†††††††† Isa.40:31

On eagleís wing theyíll ride

His mighty armís so long and great

And devils cannot hide

Manís mortal eye, yet may not see

The devils knows this too!

Yet sight, receive Godís children free

In Christ, when born anew

Weíll flee the wrath, Godís vengeful sword

While others burn in sin

True victory comes when Christ is Lord

When devils cannot win

Itís Jesus Christ The Fatherís Son

Itís Jesus all the way

In Christ alone the battleís won

And Satan, has no say

The strength of God will see us right

On Heavensí Wind weíll soar

Lifting us through the darkest night

Through Jesus Christ, lifeís Door..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.
