God Wants

God Wants


Through faith we see that God is real

We trust and we obey

But in His arms His wants us feel

The love He’ll give each day


God wants to heal to make us whole

His Spirit to receive

He wants to free each taunted soul

If only we’d believe


God wants us in His loving arms

To feel His warm caress

To flee from Satan’s lustful charms

Our lonesome lives to bless


He wants us turn from lives of shame

Repent hell’s filth before

Love and fear His awesome name

Abiding by His law


The law to love to live in peace

Be rid of selfish pride

Through love, true wealth richly increase

Our neighbours to provide


God wants to share He wants to give

Fire our filth to burn

He wants the whole wide world to live

If only she would turn


Turn from man’s wayward foolishness

From Satan’s wicked ways

To live to walk in righteousness

With heart and soul ablaze


Christ wants to keep His arms stretched wide

For yet a season more

He wants His children safe inside

Before He shuts the door.....

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.
