Read My Book

†††††

ďI wrote my guide to life for you

I know how much youíll need it

Now if you wish to start anew

Take my book and read it

I give my word throughout the book

That all within is true

Believe me child just take a look

I wrote it all for you

My Spirit there will quench your thirst

My daily bread is free

Thereís much you wonít digest at first

Yet chew a while and see

Some think it strange and yet somehow

My word comes never late

While others think itís not for now

But for a later date

My word is not of flesh and bone

Although Iíve used manís hand

I God; am Author, I alone

Best this you understand

My mighty works you now can read

Though still Iíve some to do

Iíve wrote of Christ, Jesus my Seed

Who chose to die for you!

The day will dawn when all have heard

When each has made their choice

But only those whoíve kept my word

Will live to hear my voice

I speak no lies my word is true

Lifeís choice to all is free

So read the book I gave to you

Believe and live with meĒ.....

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.
