Sling of Slings.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

� � � � � Sling of Slings.....

Moses brought victory through a rod

David, five stones and sling

A boy gave fish with loaves to God

To who�s glory we sing

The giant came in armour clad

In hand, both lance and sword

Against him stood a mere lad

In glory of The Lord

Through faith; Goliath soon lay dead

His eyes a wondering glaze

He lost his sword he lost his head

And God found endless praise

He�s King of kings He�s Lord of lords

He�s First & Last of things

The Rock of ages Sword of swords

And Sling above all slings

The risen Christ is Lord of all

The Priest who�ll never die

The Rock on which still countless fall

Life�s Corner Stone on high

Let man arise and understand

Seek not to fight alone

The sling within king David�s hand

Could nought without a stone

There�s no more time to sit and dream

The foe prowls wide to kill

God stones lying within life�s stream

He�ll use to do His will

We each in Christ can be a stone

A sling in Jesus� hand

Against the devil, flesh and bone

Can fill The Promised Land.....

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.
