Give Way to Christ

Give Way to Christ


So others answer Heaven’s call

Christ’s church must comprehend

Our airs of grace has need to fall

And prideful knees must bend


We all have failed and fallen short

We all have need of love

If not for Jesus’ true report

We’d find no place above


We need to check the way we speak

The tongue of ancient days

So not to hinder those who seek

The secrets of God’s ways


Holier than thou too should go

Humility must reign

If righteous seed we seek to sow

That grows to birth again


If Jesus’ church will see God’s face

The bride must truly change

We need to welcome every race

Beholding none as strange


No gender gap, no colour bar

No culture seen as odd

Welcome each person as they are

They’ll all belong to God


Allow God’s Spirit have His Way

It’s He; who’ll change the heart

It’s He who teaches what to say

That makes the darkness part


Too many speak where tongues should rest

Too many webs are spun

If we the bride would now be blessed

Make room for Christ God’s Son.....

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.
