In Love through Love.....

In Love through Love


I walk in love through grace received

Each path, life lays before

Always trusting whom I’ve believed

As Guide through Heaven’s door


Not far ahead but far above

Beyond my wicked ways

I’ll fly on Heaven’s wings of love

Throughout these awesome days


Though troubles yet accompany me

Though life seems oft unkind

I seek who rose from Calvary Tree

And not which lies behind


Forward upward straight and sure

Faithful stronger and true

I know through love I will endure

Lord everywhere with You


So much remains the world concealed

So much she needs to know

So much my God will be revealed

Beneath Salvation’s Flow


Beside Your feet, beneath Your throne

Servants You call to while

To learn, to live, till strong full grown

At all life’s storms to smile


In love, through love man’s sure to win

In love’s fair hand we’ll stand

Because Christ Jesus bore the sin

As selfless love had planned


Obedient to His dreadful end

Innocent Lord and free

For love beyond the final bend

Throughout eternity.....

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.
