It's Waiting

 

You’ve never been to Heaven yet

Perhaps you never will

Yet faith dictates that love will get

To reign on Zion Hill

 

We’ve heard what God has had to say

Of things that must be done

We’ve heard by grace He’s paved The Way

In Christ His Lamb & Son

 

We know by faith Life’s Light will dawn

In all who seek His face

Who through Christ’s blood become reborn

Receiving Heaven’s grace

 

Who’ve faith to fight true faith to stand

Who’ve grace to serve The King

With hope to dwell The Promised Land

Eternal praise to sing

 

Impossible; for doubting fools

For self conceited man

But those living by Jesus’ rules

Will see where life began

 

We’ll see The Way to David’s Root

We’ll eat the leaves of health

We’ll see life’s tree we’ll eat its fruit

And reap love’s endless wealth

 

But who has ears The Truth to hear?

With faith enough to see

That Jesus Christ will soon appear

To bring these things to be

 

Allow God’s grace to come your way

Let Light transform your heart

Accept what love has got to say

Let all your doubts depart…..

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.
