llow It to Flow

Allow It to Flow


If to The Lord you’re not quite true

The Truth you fail to see

Then don’t pretend you’re born anew

Like those now cleansed and free


It’s foolish to behave that way

Reject; the devil’s dart

Lest truth will show by light of day

Deceit fouls still your heart


Repent; accept there’s something wrong

Let God shine forth His Light

Refuse to sing your foolish song

And put the foe to flight


It matters not what others say

Knowing no reason why

Just kneel before The Lord and pray

Allow your soul to fly


“Allow me know what love’s about

Through Christ Your Lamb Your Son

Give strength to doubt each foolish doubt

Until each battle’s won


These many years I’ve worshipped You

Without inside Your Fame

Allow me drink of Heaven’s Dew

In truth to praise Your Name


Forgive Your servant’s bad mistake

Forgive my foolish lies

From slumber let my soul awake

And open wide these eyes


Many may learn from what I know

Many may come to see

Allow life’s living Light to flow

To set my neighbours free”.....

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.
