God's Just a Call Away
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

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

God’s just a call away

It never rains but that it pours

In Christ we have no fear

Though even as the lion roars

The Lord is always near


Although in Christ a child may fall

Yet God who reigns on high

Is just as far as man can call

So no one needs to die


The Lord our God will answer prayer

Those near and afar

Before we speak, the answer’s there

Regardless where we are


In Christ, we know these words are true

It happens all the time

Just call; and God will answer you

And doesn’t cost a dime


Through Jesus’ blood, life’s Way is free

The Lord has met the bill

The cost for you my friend and me

Was paid on Calvary Hill


Before this life draws to its end

To endless day or night

Give God a call here my friend

You’ll see, the time is right


Christ knows the name and sees the heart

Who in His presence wait

From God, no one’s too far apart

No shameful deed’s too great


The devil stands no chance at all

He’ll try with all his might

But in the end, it’s he; who’ll fall

Through Christ; he’s lost the fight.....

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.
