         It's not all Easy.

It’s hard to choose which church to go

All claim to have The Light

They all profess The Truth to know

Yet all; can not be right


Sometimes the price seems far too high

Through sin we fall astray

We feel so lost we wonder why?

To God we cease to pray


The race in Christ can feel so long

Too few believe can win

Choosing the way we sing our song

When in this life we sin!


We choose the road we walk each day

We choose if Christ can reign

God never said He’d pave The Way

Nor ease on earth the pain


That promise; is in Christ above

Who overcome life’s trial –Jn.16:33

Who spread the word with deeds of love –Mt.28:19-20

Who walk the extra mile


We must be pure in word and thought

Stand firm on which is sound

Believe in Jesus’ true report

Prepare for higher ground


Important is, we stay God true

Refuse from grace to fall

Continue Christ to keep in view

Until we hear His call    Mt.25:1…..

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.
