Consider Now!

Consider Now!


Whilst waiting in a barber’s queue

Or on a shopping spree

Consider Jesus using you

To set the captive free


Consider life and certain death

Consider grace and love

Consider He who gives you breath

And endless life above


Remember what God’s done for you

The truth of Bread & Wine

Take up The Way you should pursue

When grafted in The Vine


Hold fast in Christ each sacred law

No matter how absurd

Obey, and enter Heaven’s Door

According to Gods Word


The same through which creation came

Through which we stand or fall

Through which we flee from sin and shame

When on His name we call


The name where every knee must bow

And every tongue confess

Accept He’s Lord, right here and now

For God won’t stand for less


He’s worthy of our highest praise

He’s worthy to adore

He’s King, He’s Priest, Ancient Of Days

Who lives forever more


Accept His love accept His call

Seek Jesus while you may

Stand firm when all around you fall

When facing judgement day.....

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.
