God Will Show the Way
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


God says one day the world will burn
With all her shameful sin
Yet still the masses fail to turn
And bid Godís Son within

We wonder why God fails to call?
Save husband, child, or wife?
Why Jesus fails to save them all?
Why God wonít give them life?

Not all will come, itís sad to say
Yet God; is not to blame
Many are called, but many stray
To live their lives of shame

Itís not for us to question why?
The Lord is sure to know
Of course itís hard to see them die
Knowing just where theyíll go

Still God is true in every way
His judgementís always sound
For those in faith, who seek and pray
True life in Christ is found

Christ came as Lamb, that all may share
The life He died to give
But first we need to love and care
Learning His! Way to live

For faith! We must receive Godís word
Through faith! The Truth weíll see
Through Faith! The Shepherdís voice is heard
To set His people free

Godís wisdom comes to understand
Knowledge to those who pray
True Light; to shine in every land
To show those lost, The Way.....

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.
