Marriage Guidance.

       Marriage Guidance.

The Father sees the bride in shame

 Her lustful selfish ways

She lays aside her bridal Flame

Each time she errs and strays


Deceit becomes her daily bread

To lovers fresh she’ll run

Disloyal in the devil’s bed             Jer.3:6

A stench to Christ God’s Son


Her wicked deeds are plain in view

No hint to show remorse

So just like man, who’s wife’s untrue

The Groom should seek divorce


Though Jesus knows each serving fraud

His love burns deep inside

And so that she should flee the sword

He’ll council still His bride


For many lovers seek her charms

They’d sample all her wares

Would take her in seductive arms

In lucid love affairs


Perhaps the bride would condescend

Would gladly turn about

Her infidelity vow to end        Jer.3:9

And cast her lovers out


She’d humbly seek her Husband’s face

She’d ask His true advice

She’d beg His pardon and His grace

No matter what the price


But for a while The Groom may leave

Although He’ll feel the pain

He’ll see once more if she’ll deceive

Or true, to Him remain –Hos.3:1…..

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.
