Jesus in the Back Seat.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † †Jesus In The Back Seat.....

Godís sweetest fruit we long to share

Nothing we choose to lack

Whilst driving lifeís road to nowhere

With Jesus in the back

One thing the world must understand

Godís child must comprehend

With but the wheel in Jesusí hand

Weíll steer round dangerís bend

Allow The Shepherd lead His flock

Take heed if Christ should call

Hold fast in life unto The Rock

Through which so many fall

Its not Godís will that one should die

That one in life should fail

Thatís why Christ left His throne on high

And chose to pay our bail

Weíd still in shame lie tightly chained

Through sin weíve fallen short

In filthy rags tattered and stained

Where pleas would count for nought

Its now; in Christ our lives must change

Its time lifeís seed to sow

Let Christ The Gardner rearrange

For Heavenís vine to grow

However deep however high

However grave the load

Stand firm in Christ donít wonder why

Along the narrow road

Through faith; weíll see The Fatherís face

Weíll eat lifeís living Bread

Once Jesusí hands with ours embrace

When safe through life Heís led.. Ö

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.
