Still Not Perfect.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


Foolishly blind to Heaven’s Way

Selfish devoid of love

While sinful flesh will see decay

There’s hope enthroned above

 

There’s hope by faith when Christ we trust

There’s hope to stand life’s trials

To fight against demonic lust

To conquer Satan’s wiles

 

Through Jesus flows eternity

Power in endless streams

Extraordinary things to see

Beyond one’s wildest dreams

 

God’ promises an awesome sight

No eye has seen before

To Jesus’ bride arrayed in white

Entering Heaven’s Door

 

There’s mercy, love, amazing grace

Life complete and pure

Through faith; the will to run life’s race

With strength to all endure

 

There’s health, great wealth, strong hands to hold

Amazing dance and song

Limitless tales yet no one’s told

With a place to belong

 

In Christ there’s perfect purity

Magnificence divine

All this; with love’s prosperity

Is yours my friend and mine

 

We need but now to Jesus turn

Believe God’s faultless Word

Allow The Truth inside to burn

And practice all we’ve heard.....

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.
