How's Your Attitude.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


How is your servant attitude?

Do you, moan, groan and sigh

Or willingly your gratitude

Blesses life’s King on high

 

In countries ranging far and wide

In churches, people sing

To pray, to hear of God inside

Though not much anything

 

Christians perhaps! Or converts new

At ease, or on their knees

But as for me, my friend and you

Will our attitude God please?

 

Asking ourselves, is God content?

What goal do we pursue?

How is our walk, our heart’s intent?

When doing what we do

 

When all, my friend is said and done

When books are opened wide

Offerings alone through God’s Son

Will see His face inside

 

Though by no deed is true life ours

But faith in Christ alone

Gains His servant awesome powers

To move death’s heavy stone

 

Though seats may fill, till pews are tight

Rarely are members seen

Humbly serving by day or night

Where none can intervene

 

To God alone, their work’s revealed

Without raising alarms

Faithful knowing life’s fruit they yield

Will end in Jesus’ arms…..

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.
