Just Where You Are.....

        Just Where You Are.....

She’s sick, she’s lost, divorced, unkind

She’s in the devil’s hand

Selfish; the world is far too blind

The Truth to understand

 

The Truth of God of death and grave

The Door to life on high

The fact that Jesus came to save

And for her children die

 

There is a Way her eyes may see

There is a Way she’ll live

There is a Way to set her free

That God alone can give

 

Her disobedience needs to fall

Her pride with speed disperse

She needs on Jesus’ name to call

So God can end the curse

 

The curse that came through Adam’s shame

The curse that causes pain

The curse that ends in Jesus’ name

Through faith for birth again

 

But how you ask is this achieved?

How can the grave depart?

How can this world be so deceived?

That from The Truth she’d part

 

Life’s victory yet may still be won

O’er worldly pain and cares

Return to God believe His Son

Despise satanic wares

 

So easy, yet so hard for most

So near and yet so far

From God receive His Holy Ghost

Kneeling just where you are.....

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.
