Who'd Think.....

              Who'd Think.....

Who'd think that God is in the field?

That Jesus pulls the plough

That great will be life's daily yield

If knees to Christ would bow

 

Who'd think that God can understand?

While sickness brings such grief

That Christ can guide the surgeon's hand

And bring one swift relief

 

Who'd think that God can read one's mind?

Can see man's heart content

Can heal the eyes to truth still blind

Can straighten highways bent

 

Who'd think that God can free from jail

When Satan robs our peace

That Jesus Christ can pay our bail

And bring us swift release

 

Who'd think that God is in the trench?

With power and with love

That victory from our foe we'll wrench

When sought is help above

 

Who'd think that God will guide our ways?

Can show where feet should tread

Through Jesus; at the end of days

Can raise us from the dead

 

Who'd think that God can still be found?

That Christ brings birth anew

That planted seed on holy ground

Brings fruit as morning dew

 

There's too much doubt this side of hell

We think most lies are true

But woe who waits for time to tell

If Heaven shares your view.....

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.
