Deploy Your Love
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Deploy Your Love

 

Evoke the might of Jesus’ arm

Become a servant wise

Show selfless love and seek no harm

To those your ways despise

 

By grace we’re saved God’s love to share

God’s Light through Christ to shine

Reveal to people everywhere

How great is love divine

 

It may be hard to serve at times

Life floods one’s heart with doubt

But who forgives their neighbour’s crimes

Portraits what love’s about

 

Deploy the force that moves God’s hand

Stir up His grace above

Teach those yet dead to understand

The facts of selfless love

 

God’s gift brings growth to eyes grown weak

To souls stricken with pride

Gives strength to those whom life would seek

And draws God’s Dove inside

 

It’s free to all through Christ alone

When faith’s true song we sing

Melting one’s evil heart of stone

Beside life’s giving Stream

 

Enrich the world with love profound

Through Heaven’s Ghost within

More precious than the finest gold

When true love covers sin

 

It comes from God to use at will

Through Christ, king David’s Root

Beyond the day we climb God’s Hill

And reap its endless fruit.....

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.
