Heaven's Way

Heaven's Way


Wanting so much to serve The Lord

We’d like to be the head

We’d love to wield a mighty sword

But not by others led


We fail to seek The Father’s will

Swimming against the flow

Pushing, seeking our selves to fill

Where angels wouldn’t go


We seek in church the highest chair

Speak of Heaven above

But fail the truth of God to share

And fail to show His love


We want with God to keep in touch

We want of what we yearn

We like, we wish, we want so much

For nothing in return


But surely as The Father lives

Who hears when children pray

Who loves, likes and willingly gives

Along The Narrow Way


But selfishness; is not the means

Nor wantonness the route

Nor wilfulness nor in-betweens

That leads to wholesome fruit


We need to curb gratuitous greed

Seek truth and understand

Not all we want but all we need

Is in The Saviour’s hand


We need to seek The Fathers face

Receive of grace and love

To teach to help the human race

To find The Way above……

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.
