Life's Lord and Friend

Life's Lord and Friend


You’re saved by grace your born again

Your heart’s no longer stone

Yet once again you feel the pain

And walk as though alone


Has Satan’s spun his evil web?

Enticing you to sin

Witnessing thus a power ebb

From He who came within


Seeking no help from Christ The Lord

You’ll walk as Satan’s fool

Wielding once more the devil’s sword

Being his evil tool


You feel again as days of old

You’re plagued with fear and dread

Like ash; God’s Fire has grown so cold

You feel as though you’re dead


Feeling no more Salvation’s flow

Feeling life’s feeling end

Like twelve apostles long ago

Denying Christ as friend


But Jesus saw each servant’s heart

Heard Peter’s triple lie

Yet ushered in a brand new start

To serve and rise on high


Take heart dear friend and understand

Look deep inside and see

The living Christ is close at hand

God’s Word will set you free


God’s saving Son is always there

He’ll never let us down

He’ll give you all He has to share

With life’s eternal crown.....

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.
