Seekers Will Find

 

Silver won’t make a life complete

No gold will pay life’s rent

But scraps falling at Jesus’ feet

Will feed God’s child content

 

But who will kneel on humble ground

Who’ll take such scraps in hand?

Who’ll hunt who’ll seek until they’ve found

The future God has planned

 

Who’ll comb each hill each rock filled dale?

Who’ll sail the stormy seas

Who’ll journey on, while others fail?

Faithful on bended knees

 

Confront your soul your heart your mind

Give thought to life’s demise

Who’ll stretch their faith in hope to find?

The crumb that opens eyes

 

That heals the sick gives ears to hear

Revives the walking dead

Cause broken hearts sing sweet with cheer

For Heaven’s living Bread

 

Broken; that we should never die

Bleeding; poured out like wine

No silver, gold, nor jewel can buy

God gives through Christ divine

 

More than a crumb more than a feast

More than one’s wildest dreams

With love of Christ, life’s King and Priest

Flowing in endless streams

 

For this I’ll search, for this I’ll bow

For this I’ll comb the earth

For Heaven’s Gifts here and now

Let’s seek for all we’re worth…..

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.
