Faith Alive

† † † † † † † † Faith Alive

Faith awakens through Heavenís Word

Will quicken passive sheep

Brings life to souls whoíve truly heard

While fools remain asleep

Truth seeks to reach oneís aching soul

Make dormant spiritís rise

Will flood oneís heart will make one whole

And open blinded eyes

Faith opens lifeís eternal door

Makes free from death and pain

On Heavenís Wind to ride and soar

Where nothing can restrain

Itís not for fools to fool about

Itís not to use for fun

Itís not a gift to those who doubt

Rejecting Christ Godís Son

A dormant faith can die as well

Can lead us lost to jail

Joining the mob en route to hell

Thinking theyíd never fail

True faithís the fruit of Holy Seed

Godís righteousness has sown

To those The Truthís ordained to feed

Until itís fully grown

The smallest measure will survive

Will bring a crop to bear

When bursting in The Vine alive

Through Heavenís tender care

Faith developed till rich & strong

Will make a foe a friend

Will cause the dead to sing the song

Ordained to never end......

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.
