To Ride the Wind

† † † † † To Ride the Wind

Iím saved O Lord, yet whoíd have thought

Upon Your wind Iíd ride

Your precious Gift that Jesus brought

Is burning deep inside

From billions! Lord, Youíve set me free

Through nought Iíve ever done

Iím grateful that a child like me

May serve Your living Son

To ride The Wind, how could I hope?

Your Spirit would abide?

But now the questionís how to cope?

With all this joy inside!

Iíve never thought like this before

Nor felt the way I do

I never knew what life was for

Until I came to You

Until my God, I saw The Light

Received Your brand new wine

I never thought in Christ Iíd fight

Nor count Your Wind as mind

I felt Your glow at Jesusí feet

Sampling there Lifeís Bread

I knew The Wind, Your Healing Heat

Had raised me from the dead

Within Your hand Iíll never fail

Iíve now Your saving grace

Upon The Wind Iíll surely sail

Until Iíve won the race

For you my God, are at my side

Your Flame burns bright within

Should I now fear with You as guide?

I canít do less than winÖ..

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.
