In life; we all have fallen short

Failing to understand

Doubting Salvation, Christ’s report

Short of The Promised Land


     Walking by choice the devil’s path

Breaking The Father’s rules

Reaping condemned eternal wrath

Living as errant fools


Yet keeping free of life’s debris

Revealing deeds of shame

God gives through Christ as Guarantee

The Holy Ghost with Flame


To comfort, guide, souls to ignite

Convince the mind of sin

Convict one’s heart, expose to light

Those seeking life to win


Salvation’s Pledge we’ll know is true!

We’ll know because we feel

We’ll know in Christ when born anew

God gives His righteous Seal


So those seeking tomorrows dawn

Living in faith and trust

Believing when through Christ reborn

One’s past will turn to dust


Life’s facts we’ll know The Truth we’ll see

When Christ our lives we give

With Heaven’s grace life’s Guarantee

Forever more to live


We’ll live through faith and not by sight

Till Heaven’s will is done

We’ll live content to God’s delight

With Jesus Christ His Son.....

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.
