Just Dive Right In.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Through Heaven’s Word, True knowledge starts

And freedom therein lies

Seems foolish to our sinful hearts

And boring to our eyes


No wonder when most think it odd

When first to church we go

First hearing about our God

They just don’t wish to know


Continuing to follow lies

They walk the path of fools

Saying its folly to be wise

If when a dead man rules!


But have you read the Bible yet?

Not just a page or two

But for the moment time forget

And read it through and through


I promise if you read it right

The Truth will set you free

Heaven will send love’s Precious Light

Through which blind eyes will see


Accept what Bible pages say

Believe the words I speak

The Truth will dawn to show The Way

To that, we eagerly seek!


Be wise be strong and dive right in

It's no good looking back

Get rid of all that loathsome sin

Receive treasures you lack


 Rely, no more on flesh and bone

Though yet it seems absurd

Render The Lord your heart of stone

And live by Heaven’s Word…..

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.
