At True Life's Dawn.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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


When life has come into your door

As Heaven guides your day

Expect in life to lose no more

Although sometimes you may

 

God has reasons for everything

Some may seem quite dire

Then change as if on angel’s wing

To those of one’s desire

 

No ogre is The Lord on high

Nor tyrant bent on scorn

But loving Father to you and I

Through Christ His Son reborn

 

Born of water through Jesus’ blood

Through trust through faith in love

Gifted to live The Way we should

Upon The Way above

 

But if the tide of life should turn

If things in life grow worse

Even when health and houses burn

From God, it’s not a curse

 

A test to those in Jesus strong

Like Jews in Jacob’s land

Guiding through grace turning from wrong

The world to understand

 

Once, Jesus Christ, your soul has found

When Heaven’s Key is won

Don’t think this life’s a playground

Think not one’s saved for fun

 

Trust in The Lord His love His might

Show faith and not remorse

Walk in The Truth live in The Light

Along God’s chosen course.....

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.
