Discontented, Dissatisfied.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


Discontented,  dissatisfied

Not knowing how or why

Countless have lived, countless have died

Not knowing God on high

 

Not knowing the selfless love of Christ

Not knowing He chose to die

Not knowing, why He was sacrificed

How sinners! rise on high

 

Jesus, Jesus, Christ! is the Way

Life's Key, to Heaven's Door

Life's Shepherd, calling sheep astray

Life's Bridge to evermore

 

Almighty, omnipotent, true

Love, far beyond extreme

Life's living source, Life's birth anew

Answers to every dream

 

Come to Jesus, raise up your face

Your hope, in faith, your hand

Pray sins forgiveness, pray for grace

To dwell Love's Promised Land

 

Seeing your soul, your heart your mind

Cares love,  hates, your tears

Knowing your shame, Love is resigned

To wipe away your fears

 

To love you, heal you, forgive your sin

Free from demonic harms

Teach you to live, teach you to win

To take you in His arms

 

Jesus! caused  all, Life's wondrous things

Warns, of hell's pit of fire

Take you under salvations' wings

If Life! is your desire.....

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.
