����� �Is there an Answer?

�If God is real as bibles say

If Heaven�s in the sky

Why must we suffer still today?

Why are we sick and die?

Why do yet people cheat and kill?

Why does our God not care?

Why do some countries hunger still?

While others have to spare

How can a Spirit dwell within?

How is man born again?

How can a fire burn our sin?

And yet we feel no pain

How does a sinful man repent?

Where do we seek on high?

How is today a life misspent?

Yet know no reason why

How does one find salvation�s door?

How do we please God now?

How can we keep His holy law?

When no one shows us how�

�Allow God�s precious rain to fall

Salvation�s Wind to blow

Knowledge will flow to those who call

Seeking life�s facts to know

Our bridal robe, Christ gives us free

Sound wisdom true impart

Instructing all on bended knee

Who come with humble heart

The swift will help the old and slow

The strong will help the weak

Sharing our love beneath the glow

Of Him no fool will seek��..

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.
