Life's Recipe.....

            Life's Recipe.....

The bible speaks, The Truth we need

While devils lead astray

On spiritual food one needs to feed

Truly to live each day


We must return, to Heavens’ book

Seek out, what God would tell

The Truth revealed if one would look

Can save from death and hell


God’s Word is here for all to see

Life’s plans made all too plain

Life’s recipe will set us free

And lead to birth again


Receive The Word, within your life

Let Jesus plant life’s Seed

Let Heaven’s Promise like a knife

Cut out demonic weed


Read Heaven’s road, in black and white

God’s map showing The Way

Life’s tactics, how to fight the fight

And keep the foe at bay


Accept Christ Jesus, as our guide

When placing always first

God’s “Well of Life” truly inside

Will quench spiritual thirst


The Lord spreads truth on every page

How man should handle sin

Tactics, strategies; throughout the age

Until life’s fight we win


Leave not life’s manual gathering dust

But drink each day anew

Giving The Author, all your trust

And all the love He’s due....

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.
