One Thing I've Understood
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † † †One Thing I've Understood

One thing in life Iíve understood

The truth Calvaryís Tree

The power within each drop of blood

Christ spent for you and me

Iíve seen the darker shades of night

Observed the devil smile

Iíve walked through life in shadowed light

And flourished for a while

Iíve walked with death so many times

Being the devilís tool

Now purged and safe from all past crimes

Iíll play no more the fool

I see the wisdom of The Cross

The love of Christ Godís Son

Why for a while He suffered loss

And how lifeís war is won

I see The Way to life on high

The gaping jaws of hell

I see how man may never die

And so Godís Truth I tell

No more is life an unknown path

Through Christ Iíve seen The Light

In Him Iíll flee the coming wrath

Wearing a robe of white

In armour bright Iíll stand my post

Seeing my future clear

With Father Son & Holy Ghost

Iíve nothing more to fear

Iíll sing no more the devilís song

Nor dance to Satanís tune

I know with whom I now belong

And know Heís coming soon..Ö

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.
