God's Changing Wind
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson

† † †God's Changing Wind

Until The Wind of God was mine

Till Heaven brought The Light

Before I drank salvationís wine

The Truth was not in sight

But now by grace Heís been revealed

Even to such as me!

Within His love Iím tightly sealed

And have Lifeís Guarantee!

Godís power Heavenís Glory came

Through Christ; Godís Lamb &† Son

Within lifeís book He wrote my name

Forgiving all Iíve done

To know such joy one only dreams

Such peace was quite unknown

Through Jesusí blood, Heaven redeems

To walk no more alone

Godís deadly curse, is mine no more

Through faith, this child believed

Within oneís heart God carves lifeís law

With blessings rich received

Exalted by The King of kings

Raised up in faith to stand

With heart and soul my spirit sings

Within The Saviourís hand

In He who died, I stand reborn

Through Jesusí love and grace

I walk behind those curtains torn

Within Godís secret place

I serve where those of old have served

Godís Spirit shows The Way

I eat the bread for priests reserved

With Jesus night and dayÖ..

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.
