Turn To Life.....

Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


We must repent from filth inside

Return to grace and love

Till self, hate, deceit has died

Payment life’s Way above

 

We need to look; to Heaven’s Way

See Jesus Christ as Lord

Bid Him to guide us night and day

Less, can no one afford

 

Truth needs no exaggeration

Revealing Heaven’s might

Government, kingdom or nation

One day will see the light

 

God is almighty, love supreme!

Omnipotent and true

Creative, more than man can dream

Now partially to view

 

Beyond mankind’s expectations

When life’s great Judge we meet

Governments, kingdoms, all nations

Will bow at Jesus’ feet

 

Because God knows, these things will be

To flood this world with light

God sent His Word for man to see

The power of His might

 

Yet only few repentant souls

Through ages passed till now

From east to west, between both poles

Most still; refuse to bow

 

Though Grace is calling sinners out

House, brothel, bar and pew

If Jesus failed, to take man’s doubt

What else must Heaven do?.....

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.
