Strategic Plants

            Strategic Plants

We’re here we’re there we’re everywhere

We’re children of The Light

We’re living bread the lost to share

And put the foe to fight


The Lord strategic plants His seed

In places far and wide

To go in love to guide and feed

Till all are safe inside


Like Daniel, some in chains are found

We’re strangers all alone

But God can plant on solid ground

Can raise to heights unknown


When Esther by the king was seen

Today is plain to see

Strategic Christ had placed His queen

To set His people free


When Joseph sold to Egypt land

Seemed lost and deep in need

God brought His child to understand

Great nations He could feed


We too! The Lord may plant today

In places none desire

To show the lost Salvation’s way

To raise and clothe with Fire


Still countless serve The Lord confused

Although by grace reborn

They’ll sit in church from God unused

Until one special dawn


Till Heaven’s Promise comes to town

Till time is at it’s height

They’ll spread out wide Salvation’s gown

And flood the church with Light.....

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.
