Talents & Gifts To The Few.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

Gifts Christ gives God’s chosen few

Talents to those who serve

What might The Lord bestow on you?

One day you may deserve


Servants are never out of sight

Working and when at rest

Diligent selfless with strange delight

Passing their Master’s test


By stepping out the blessed hope

Oft failing to understand

Faithful knowing somehow they’d cope

To do the work at hand


Trusting God, His power supreme

Drinking of Heaven’s Dew

Driving them on, living the dream

With life’s true home in view


God’s gift is not a plaything

Nor talents yours or mine

But used to serve beneath The Wing

Of The King of kings divine


Preaching teaching and prophecy

Healing great miracles too

Helping lost souls, blind hearts to see

And lead to life anew


Through brand new birth pure and clean

Devoid of sin and shame

With nothing or no one in between

Of God enthroned in Flame


Gifts, talents, with fervent resolve

Moving mountains galore

Gifted through Jesus problems to solve

En route our Father’s Door.....

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.
