Sacrifice To Healing.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


Obeying God makes fools most wise

A sacrifice to healing

Quickens souls open blind eyes

Making life more appealing

 

By giving God one’s heart and soul

Though filthy with deceit

God’s word will guide will heal make whole

To sit at Jesus’ feet

 

There; to eat of the finest fair

Drink from Salvation’s well

Flourish through love, through tender care

Shutting the gates to hell

 

Obedience to The living One

Complete without reserve

Will God not give when victory’s won?

What each of us deserve

 

Children of God through second birth

Within righteous and pure

Love, as greatest power on earth

Will make election sure

 

Yield to the Lord follow His will

Accept Him at His word

With living grace your cup He’ll fill

Practising what you’ve heard

 

For righteous is The Lord on high

His promise made to you

Always to live never to die

Will stand forever true

 

Be willing to serve, do your best

Resist demonic charms

Give God your all, pass every test

And rise into His 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.
