The Wind of Change

We find the lost in great distress

They hear of Christ and doubt

“If God were real He’d see this mess

He’d turn this world about”


But God wants man to make the start

In love He gives His Seal

So all who have Him in their heart

Put shoulders to the wheel


Complacence is a foolish child

Ignorance guides the blind

Disobedience rampages wild

Where Satan rules the mind


Deceit stands master of the life

Having for Truth no time

Where fire severs as a knife

Each fool who ends in crime


Yet every day more children die

Where facts remain unheard

They’ve had no chance as you and I

Without Salvation’s Word


The church must rise roll high her sleeves

Should cease to wonder why

In love prepare God’s golden sheaves

While night draws ever nigh


Life’s Wind upon God’s threshing floor

Blows gentle through ripe wheat

In Christ no chaff enters the store

Reserved for God’s elite


Life’s Wind of change is everywhere

The air, the sea, the land

Arise in Christ take plough and share

Lend God a willing hand.....

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.
