Life's Perception

Life's Percetion


Friend, what’s life taught you to perceive?

What holds the grave in store?

What follows, next do you believe?

When life has closed the door


Do you perceive that God is real?

Christ’s resurrection true

Through faith He gives His Holy Seal

And life through birth anew


Do you perceive by faith to see

The living God to hear

Believe by grace He’ll set you free

And take away your fear


Do you perceive the devil’s lost?

His kingdom’s crumbled down

That Jesus’ blood has paid the cost

For you to wear a crown


Is Christ perceived within your heart?

Healing your aching soul

Now promising He’ll never part

Until you’ve reached life’s Goal


Do you perceive The Truth’s to find?

Beyond life’s doubt and pain

The wondrous things God has in mind

Once Jesus comes again


Do you perceive the victory?

God’s Lamb suffered to bring

Rising from death so you and me

With endless joy may sing


If you can answer yes dear friend

With doubt removed from view

Then I perceive at life’s last bend

The Father waits for you……

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.
