Step out in Faith
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Step out in Faith


Seeking God’s face each night and day

For months for even years

We’ll kneel and pray and pray and pray

With heart and soul in tears


We know The Lord can do this thing

Our faith for that is strong

And so with prayer God’s praise we’ll sing

Believing nothing’s wrong


But faith is not just sitting still

True faith; dictates we stand

When through our deeds we do God’s will

Then God will lend a hand


We need to move we need to stir

Far more than idle talk

If mighty things will soon occur

We need to walk The Walk


It’s good to pray it’s good to praise

But still there’s so much more

Consulting God in all our ways

Opens many a door


Rise up; step out but not with fools

Learn first to understand

See Christ as Lord obey His rules

Observe His mighty hand


Though God may love the songs we sing

Our ways are His concern

He’s not a puppet on a string

Nor tap to twist and turn


Not everything; must Heaven do

Once grace has been received

One’s faith requires actions too

If Christ has been believed.....

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.
