† † Make This Wretch Your Tool.....†

Growing in truth in love exceeding

Through Christ giver of life

My service Lord I pray while pleading

Make as a faithful wife

Remain me true if when I fail

Restore my hope anew

You broke my chains You paid my bail

That I would walk with You?

I found Your love, Your warm caress

Your Ghost guiding The Way

Like Jacob Lord, I pray Youíll bless

Through serving You each day

In Truth my God in spirit real

With hands, with feet and voice

Regardless of the way I feel

Let love become my choice

Iím here to serve from depth of soul

With all Youíve had to give

Helping another reach their goal

How through this life I live

Regardless of my talentís size

How great my gift received

Please grant my life will open eyes

To Him I have believed

Not for fortune neither for fame

For silver, gold nor jewel

Anoint to serve in Jesusí name

Please make this child Your tool

Allow Your strength within me Lord

Stretch forth Your mighty hand

Allow through me Your love be poured

The world to understandÖ..

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.
