God Wants Children

God Wants Children


With God we would be reconciled

We’d dwell The Promised Land

But lest we come as would a child

We fail to understand


We fail to see the truth of Christ

Redemption’s awesome plan

The reason why God sacrificed

His Son as mortal man


We fail to see man’s selfish ways

The grace of God on high

The perfect love that would amaze

A child who wonders why


Who seek the hand of God in theirs

Who’ll seek His warm caress

With heart and soul believe He cares

Their childishness to bless


It’s hard for pride to see such things

Or for the worldly wise

For man to rise as if on wings

And enter Paradise


Yet innocence of childish thought

Where truth’s reformed within

Believe their Saviour’s true report

And destiny of sin


Many continue running wild

Condemned through selfish lust

While blessed are the souls meek and mild

Who place in Christ their trust


Just as children we need to be

Seeking and sharing love

Trusting their Father completely

Watching them from above.....Michael

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.
