Take It & Leave It...

Whatever we gain here on earth

Whatever man’s designed

Without The Christ and second birth

We’ll leave it all behind

 

With nothing but the filth and shame

With evil in one’s soul

We’ll end playing the devil’s game

Without The winning goal

 

We’ve fallen short of Heaven’s mark

Refused to live God’s Way

Dilly-dallying in the park

Falling from life astray

 

Away from God His love His grace

While others earn His kiss

We’re left looking in time and space

Still thinking where God is

 

The bible says He’s in the heart

Tending His servant’s soul

Coming to live never to part

Till made complete and whole

 

In spirit and in Truth God said

Richer than all before

Through which to raise the walking dead

And show them Heaven’s Door

 

Through Heaven’s grace reveal The Key

While walking in The Light

Serving The Lord helping man see

Before the pending night

 

As darkness dawns The Light will rise

Within Salvation’s cloud

Leaving this world turning with lies

Feeding the maddening crowd.....

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.
