A Relationship With Jesus.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

A saunter, something to tease us

A rendezvous with life

A relationship with Jesus

Ended the source of strife


The One I thought was fool of fools

Thought was a bare faced lie

Was born in a book of manmade rules

Children would read and cry


Might it be real can it be true

How could on earth this be

Am I falling in love with You?

That only now I see


How wonderful to feel Your touch

To feel the glow inside

The tingling flows almost as much

As would a turning tide


By God what more is hidden

What more awaits the dawn?

But are not such things forbidden

Should they not become withdrawn?


More love than this must one explode

One’s heart must soon ignite

It’s like I’ve reached the mother lode

And everything’s just right


Why my God was I never told?

Why is the church asleep?

Leaving us dying in the cold

Before the final leap


Escaping the hands of danger

Into the arms of love

Who chose His birth in a manger?

Life’s King of Glory above.....

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.
