What's In Your House.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


††† What's In Your House.....

Is the house you live a joyful one?

Is your daily song of cheer?

Is your path in life a walk of fun?

Have you learned God to fear?

Or is your house full angst and dread?

Is your song of bitter tears?

You find no peace at night in bed

From torment through the years

So long youíve lived a life of pain

So empty, void of love

So full of storms of icy rain

You think no Godís above

Has plight become your middle name?

Distress has taken hold

Your troubled roadís full constant shame

Instead of paved with gold

But Heavenís true and wants your soul

Relief is on the wing

The living Christ can make you whole

And bring sweet joys of spring

Spring; the start of something new

The germ of life divine

Beginning with The Morning Dew

A sip of Heavenís Wine

Let Jesus clean that house of yours

Let Jesus be your guide

Just open wide your creaking doors

Let healing Oil inside

Let love create Godís presence there

Let Heaven be your goal

Let Jesus take your every care

Let peace caress your soulÖ..

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.
