When Storms Gather.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Are you afraid to face the storm?

To speak of truth and light

To leave your house so snug and warm

To join in Heaven’s fight


Arise in faith step out in trust

When through God’s Son you pray

Will not God’s promise turn to dust

Everything in your way


Believe in He that cannot fail

When through Christ’s name you call

However harsh the ice cold gale

Heaven won’t see you fall


By stepping out, your heart’s revealed

When hope in Christ you place

Within your spirit, God will yield

Your every need with grace


God’s Word is true He cannot lie

Regardless how we think

Who win who lose who live who die

God offers life to drink


Freely to drink God gives the choice

Amply one’s cup to fill

Through living bread richly rejoice

Raising the walking dead


Starving lost souls near petrified

Blind to God’s grace & love

Knowing not Jesus crucified

How may they rise above?


Thank God for Kinsman redeemers

Jesus God’s Lamb & Son 

For the few God-fearing dreamers

Who stop when faith in love’s won......

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.
