Who Seek a Place.

† † †Who Seek a Place.

To worship God, I seek a place

A church on Zion hill

Where just as Moses face to face

They seek The Fatherís will

I pray The Lord will help me find

His house of living stone

Where sin and shame are left behind

A home to call my own

With heart and soul The Truth I seek

The Arms; where I belong

Where strengthís to gather when oneís weak

Where love can sing its song

Where those inside bear Jesusí name

Where eyes are trained above

Where all baptised within His Flame

Are guided by Lifeís Dove

Where evilís shed its dark disguise

Where facts can have their say

Where those yet dead in Truth arise

And walk The Narrow Way

Where all in Christ are justly fed

A place where God has blessed

Where through His love and Spirit led

Iíll walk my righteous quest

To this; I pray my God would guide

In Christ to pastures green

Where still the waters run inside

Can wash and keep me clean

Until in Christ my place is found

The place The Lord has planned

Iíll walk seeking the higher ground

Within Salvationís handÖ

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.
