Promoted by The King of kings

To walk at Jesus’ side

Be set apart for wondrous things

In service of His bride


Promoted to serve His chosen few

His house of living stone

Helping His children born anew

While mortal flesh and bone


Promoted by The Lord of Lords

One’s sinful life to change

Serving each one that God affords

Their lives to rearrange


Promoted not to play the lord

Who’d keep His people down

But righteously to wield the sword

On those who’d steal life’s crown


Promoted to serve and represent

The greatness of God’s love

Through spiritual gifts Heaven’s sent

Prepare for life above


Promoted to serve the rich and poor

Each child who has a need

Help neighbours here and foreign shore

Their hungry souls to feed


Promoted to serve The living Bread

Life’s Wine from Jesus’ hand

Healing the sick, the walking dead

To rise at faith’s command


Promoted to stand by Heaven’s grace

A blessing to the least

So others too may see God’s face

With Jesus at The Feast.....

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.
