God Of Love God Of Grace.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


We sell churches demolish fonts

Blaspheme God’s sacred name

Shameful the world does all she wants

As though it were a game

 

Satan himself cannot dispute

The love God’s shown mankind

But still, we walk the devil’s route

With only self in mind

 

Voicing excuses everywhere

Seeking for fresh ways out

Does no one know does no one care

To show what life’s about

 

The neighbours up and down the street

Countries that war and fight

Children hungry die in defeat

Without Salvation’s Light

 

What do Your servants do all day?

What do we hope to find

Other than reading other than pray

With self all day in mind

 

By Heaven’s grace, we’re safe and sound

Through Jesus’ blood set free

Yet what of those who’ve still not found

The Way to victory

 

The Way to Truth The Way through Life

The One True Way above

Seeking to be The Saviour’s wife

Receiving constant love

                                                                       

Yes God is! Love and love is true

The only Way, on high

But where am I and where are you?

While neighbours ignorant die.....

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.
