Forever.....

Forever! And know what it means

Eternity in Light

When truth’s removed life’s shadowed screens

And death has lost its fight

 

Wondrous joy, incredible peace

With Jesus hand in hand

To know God’s love will never cease

And truly understand

 

Blessed is the child who sees these things

The soul, Salvation’s kissed

Who’ll rise as if on eagle wings

Beyond death’s temporary mist

 

How great to know such awesome grace

To know The Father’s will

To know one day we’ll see His face

And have of love our fill

 

Yet until then there’s life to crown

God’s chosen path to tread

To pull the devil’s fortress down

To raise the very dead

 

For this is what we’re meant to do

One reason why we’re blessed

Chosen to join Christ’s faithful few

Upon this splendid quest

 

That others know that others see

That others comprehend

That others walk completely free

With Christ as Lord and Friend

 

Come to The Light, stop running wild

Call others to The Cause

That others may be reconciled

And place their hands in Yours…..

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.
