God Opens the Heart (2)....


The devil prowls around the clock

Seeking whom he can fool

To separate from Heaven’s flock

He’ll use most any tool


How can we see the wolf about?

When heads are in the sand

When still like fools, lost sheep in doubt

We fail to understand


We must come in from out the cold

Give Christ one’s heart of stone

Return to safety of the fold

Be no one’s prey alone


God takes no joy when children fail –Eze.33:11

When bound with Satan’s chain

But opens wide the strongest jail

And sets us free again


Devils will trick will cheat and kill

Will steal and will entice

But all who do The Father’s will

Are wise to each device


So greet today a brand new dawn

Accept God's Truth as seen

Receive His grace, become reborn

Be through His blood washed clean


Ascend no more stagnation hill

Put all your cares to flight

Receive in Christ Salvation’s Pill

God’s medicine of Light


Let God inject His Living Flow

Healing both flesh and soul

Accept with love His Liquid Glow

Inside to make you whole.....

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.
