The Will of God

The Will of God


Alone and lost for many years

Quite cynical of love

Hoping to dry my many tears

I searched for Truth above


I’d sought truth here, sought facts there

At home and foreign shore

But all my neighbours had to share

Just left me seeking more


Until I heard of Jesus Christ

The Son of God on high

The Lamb The Father sacrificed

That I should never die


From front to back I read The Book

I sought in earnest prayer

Till nowhere else have I to look

For suddenly Your there


Please graft this sinner in The Vine

This child of flesh and bone

Allow Your will become now mine

Make soft my heart of stone


Regardless how I rise or feel

I start the same each day

Praying my God that You reveal

Your perfect will and Way


I pray for strength that I fulfil

Each challenge set before

That if I come against Your will

You’ll close temptation’s door


Knowing I’ve walked the devil’s path

I pray my God forgive

Through Jesus save me from the wrath

In Jesus let me live…..

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.
