Is Faith That Strong?

Is Faith That Strong?


“Is faith enough The Lord to please?

Can faith prevent a fight?

Can faith bring sinners to their knees?

And put their past to flight


What is this faith some brag about?

Is anything so odd?

What’s wrong walking with cautious doubt?

Even regarding God


Does faith possess such potent might?

Can faith defeat the foe?

Forcing devils to take their flight

And stop demonic flow


Can nothing else God satisfy?

Can faith cause Christ to save?

Can it prevent one’s time to die?

And close the gaping grave?”


“Faith; is God’s gift we may embrace

A force not earned or bought

It comes complete with Heaven’s grace

Wrapped in Jesus’ report


It’s Heaven’s will and not our own

That anyone should boast

It comes through Christ, life’s Corner Stone

God! The Holy Ghost


Love’s gift of faith’s through Christ divine

To those on Zion Hill

Given to help the bride to shine

Doing The Father’s will


Christ knows the faith to each He’ll bring

He knows the reason why

Only the faithful songs we sing

Will reach God’s throne 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.
