Not Just Words


God’s Word describes this two edged sword

As mortal flesh and bone

Coming to earth as Christ The Lord

And true life’s Corner Stone


Actual on earth to see alive

Quite clear to understand

Helping life’s journey to survive

Through love and mighty hand


It never slumbers, never rests

It’s active all year round

God’s guiding light through all life’s tests

Will lead to hallowed ground


To learn to use both night and day

To teach, raise up and guide

To read, ponder, faithful obey

And in our hearts abide


We’ll never fall nor will we fail

When to The Truth we heed

Nor will we land in Satan’s jail

When on this fair we feed


It lifts, it scolds, promotes the mind

Quenches the land stone dry

Restores true sight to lost and blind

To seek life’s facts on high


Penetrating one’s very soul

Dividing marrow and joint

Shining its light toward the goal

Of life’s eternal point


Only a fool would doubt its worth

And those defiant die

But faithful souls will flee the earth

And rise with Christ on high.....

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.
