Peace in Truth

Peace in Truth


We all have thoughts from time to time

When facts inside unfold

Revealing deeds of wanton crime

Revealing hearts grown cold


Amazing things one’s soul will find

When selfless eyes can see

When sleep is blessed with peace of mind

When hearts are trouble free?


Asking yourself if Christ is real

And if the bible’s true

If God’s aware of how you feel

And sees the things you do


Spare a moment to look inside

Take stock of how you live

Are secrets there you wish to hide?

Would burdens God you give?


We feel it in our bowels at night

Murmurings deep within

Such thoughts from which we’d soon take flight

Death’s fruit of wayward sin


Regardless of our answer now

In spite of how much shame

Let wisdom lead our knees to bow

Through Jesus’ holy name


Through Christ alone is life restored

Beneath His healing wings

When He becomes our living Lord

And King above all kings


So bid The Promised Wind to blow

On lives and times misspent

Before we reap of what we sow

If not we now repent.....

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.
