Come try again

To Peter, Christ was heard to say

“Heed well, this word to you

When you return to walk life’s Way

Strengthen the others too!”         Lk.22:32


Yet some would say who’ve heard the call

In Christ I’m born anew

I’m saved by grace and cannot fall

Regardless what I do


Such dangerous words are Satan’s tools

The devil’s cunning snare

For who, can break life’s holy rules

And think God wouldn’t care?


When Christ’s elect; may even fail

Not few will come to ruin

Through sin once more they’ll land in jail

When God begins to prune


Not even Christ; could break the law

Sinless! He had to die

No shame, can enter Heaven’s door

No darkness dwells on high


With wisdom’s dawn we understand

Though spirits may be strong

The flesh needs Jesus’ guiding hand

To help when things go wrong


Be not afraid, nor filled with pride

Stand humble and remain

Seek Jesus now, become His bride

Receive of Heaven’s rain


Be no one’s fool and live deceived

Rebuild on solid ground

Return to Christ and be received

The second time around.....

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.
