Unity of Love
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Unity of Love

 

Palaces churches crumble down

Pillars and posts give way

Where discord wears its evil crown

Where faith is in decay

 

Yet love turns winter into spring

Contentment will abide

Where prayer soaring on angel’s wing

Brings harmony inside

 

God loves when harmony changes life

Where humble souls succeed

He sees where true love conquers strife

And meets His children’s need

 

No longer blind to plot and scheme

No longer walking dead

God fills one’s cup from Heaven’s Stream

And gives life’s living Bread

 

Fearing no longer curse nor sword

Walking in Light and love

Treasures received through Christ The Lord

Equip for life above

 

Unity makes the devil fail

Integrity brings his fall

Obedience frees from Satan’s jail

But true love conquers all

 

Help neighbours lost, comfort who cry

Bring victims swift release

Encourage those afraid to die

Sharing God’s gift of peace

 

No idle thoughts can bring these things

No pious words alone

But those who dwell beneath God’s wings

Can melt a heart of Stone…..

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.
