God Loves

 

Self ambition’s an evil seed

A danger to the soul

But love meeting another’s need

Will heal and make us whole

 

Be a blessing a humble tool

Sweet aromas above

Abide by Jesus’ golden rule

Serve each other in love

 

Let each to all be great delights

Show others that we care

Dwell not in conflict, settle fights

And share love everywhere

 

Love in spirit, love with your heart

Give no regard to cost

Watching burdens swiftly depart

Helping the weak and lost

 

For love’s no good unless its spread

Until we’re selfless giving

Helping the sick the walking dead

Making lives worth living

 

True loves a gift through Christ divine

To break the devil’s chain

For pouring forth life’s precious wine

En route to birth again

 

Be still and watch how love can be

How true love conquers all

Healing saving setting souls free

Thwarting another’s fall

 

From love, God never turns His face

But love as always planned

Pouring blessings with fervent grace

Through Jesus’ outstretched hand.....

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.
