Will You! Disobey?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

     Will you! disobey?

“Through disobedience, Adam fell

And grieved The Lord on high

Today we too can end in hell

Unless to self we die


But still we choose to cheat and lie

God’s rules we disobey

Through lack of knowledge people die

Turning to dust and clay


Many in death will find no peace

Their worms see no decay

Their pain in hell will never cease

Because they disobey


Even in church we’re sad and weak

Few come and fewer stay

The One who’s face we’ve come to seek

We doubt and disobey


In Christ we’re taught to place our trust

We’re taught to fast and pray

We’re taught to live righteous and just

Yet still we disobey


Within the light, our walk is good

Till darkness comes our way

Although we do the things we should

We also disobey


We hunger for God and we thirst

Our tithes we promptly pay

When asked to help we’re often first

Yet still we disobey


Lord; at Your feet we humbly bow

Though oft we’ve gone astray

We pray that through You’re teaching now

We’ll cease to disobey.....

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.
