Can't Get Enough.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


Can’t get enough of selfless love

Walking The Father’s Way

Orchestrated through Christ above

Manifested today

 

How wonderful knowing He lives

Though many watched Him die

How those who seek He helps and gives

The grace to rise on high

 

Away from the maddening crowd

The wars fools fight today

Where love beyond every cloud

Through faith invites we stay

 

Am I such a fool to say no?

Too proud my need to see!

Whilst true love causes hearts to glow

And aching souls agree

 

I can’t get enough, close enough

No way enough of Christ

No one’s more sweet stronger or tough

Than He God sacrificed

 

In Him I see my Lord my King

My help my one true friend

Why can this world, not praises sing?

Or turn to comprehend

 

Jesus alone can souls redeem

Can cleanse a filthy heart

Can bring inside loves living stream

Never again to part

 

I can’t get enough of God’s Son

Whatever fools may say

If endless life is to be won

Jesus Christ is “The Way”……..

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.
