While Blessings Flow

While Blessings Flow

 

While blessings flow like swelling streams

Frustrated still they die

With shattered hopes neurotic dreams

Living the devil’s lie

 

Rejecting Christ as Heaven’s Word

Blind to Salvation’s Light

They blind reject The Truth they’ve heard

While faithless in their plight

 

A prayer can lead blind eyes to see

God’s grace is paved with love

Christ is the path to liberty

Life’s only Way above

 

Let wisdom reign, take sound advice

Let Heaven intervene

Let Jesus lead through paradise

Love’s garden luscious green

 

Let faith clear shadows of doubt

Dry torrential tears

Reveal what life is all about

Soothing fruitless fears

 

Consider He who’s coming soon

Take heed let wisdom tell

Sing no longer Satan’s tune

Nor dance his way to hell

 

Resolve instead from self to turn

Let love become your guide

Let wisdom teach you to discern

The hidden wealth inside

 

Be white as snow, let blessings rain

Let Jesus wash your eyes

Believe when He returns again

He’ll call your name to rise…..

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.
