There's So Much More

Thee's So Much More

 

Alone we travel life’s long road

Regardless where we’re bound

Alone we bear our heavy load

Till sleeping underground

 

But is the ground our final rest

Is death the last goodbye?

Could life not be The Father’s test?

Concluded when we die

 

Yet in a way these thoughts are true

The reasons people give

But God’s so much in love with you

He wants His children live

 

Who is this God with so much love?

That you He should adore

Who wants you rise to Him above

And live forever more

 

God saw you as a little child

He sees your heart of stone

He sees you as you’re running wild

Yet wants you for His own

 

He paved The Way to let us see

Crucified long ago

Saving our souls setting us free

Showing how far He’ll go

 

One thing today is more than sure

Whatever we’ve believed

God’s still prepared to do much more

Than what we’ve yet received

 

It’s up to us the choice is ours

Salvation’s rich and free

Yield to Christ, His awesome powers

Obey The Lord and see.....

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.
