How to Love God


How does one love The risen King?

Embrace what none can see

Commit to Him life’s song we sing

Amongst this world’s debris


How can we touch The living Lord?

Court Jesus Christ on high

Surely no kiss one would afford

The Father’s love could buy


Obedience touches the heart God?

Could move the hands of love

Although the world may think quite odd

What thrills Heaven above


Though spiritual blind wonder why

Lost souls may think it strange

How truthful worship churches cry

Man’s sinful path can change


Our daily worship, heartfelt praise

Shedding selfless tears

Can stir, move The Ancient Of Days

To rid one’s worldly fears


Can touch a soul, can melt a heart

Bring sight unto the blind

Can make demonic creatures part

And heal a troubled mind


But one thing all should understand

Upon life’s Way above

Obedience is the Lord’s command

The Way to show true love


Love your neighbour, begrudge no foe

Give free of Heaven’s share

Consult your God where’re you go

Showing you really care.....

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.
