God's Hidden Treasure

 

How wonderful it is to pray
When Christ becomes one's choice
To walk in truth to find The Way
To hear The Master's voice

To hear His Word feel His touch
His warmth His tender care
No wonder how we love so much
The One who's love we share

To this! One needs but moments free
To choose, to turn from sin
By faith, to ask on bended knee
For Christ to dwell within

The Lamb who died the Christ who lives
The God who reigns supreme
The Son who cares who loves and gives
Beyond man's wildest dream

The Spirit of The Lord is real
His every promise true
Countless have heard billions can feel
Who've witnessed birth anew

Through faith; we see The Truth firsthand
The facts of life laid bare
Secrets learning to understand
Treasures beyond compare

Eternal stands God's covenant sure
No eye has ever seen
No ear has ever heard before
Ordained for Jesus' queen

Appointed for the chosen bride
Ere time on earth began   
Continuing as yet to hide
As God's eternal plan......

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.
