Salutations.....

You heard my plea my tearful calling

Though plagued with pangs of doubt

Your answer Lord was so enthralling

Turning my life about

 

Amidst world battles, true life’s war

If now I live or die

Fear has gone locking doubt’s door

And the devil knows why

 

My God! You’re always with me

Angels are at my side

Since Jesus blood set me free

And gave me true life’s Guide

 

The Holy Spirit with fire

The bible’s Heavenly Dove

Gives council, when I require

Along life’s way above

 

I never knew or ever planned

One day to see Your face

Soon I will in Your Promised Land

Through love and saving grace

 

Homeward! Lord, Heaven Bound

Where trillions of angels sing

I’ll live walking on hallowed ground

With Jesus my Lord and King

 

I’m not dreaming, I know it’s real

My God, I know it’s true

With guarantee and holy seal

I’ll surely rise with You

 

Lord how much longer must I wait?

Excitement fills my heart

When will we reach Your pearly gate?

When will The Rapture start?…..

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.
