Life's Elite
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

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


†††††††††††† Lifeís elite

Who walk in Christ will always live

The Lord will see you through

He sees each need and longs to give

None else can give to you

Godís Spirit guides His church on earth

Yet not from books sheíll read

But through Godís Word, through second birth

Salvationís living Seed

When life it seems brings nought but rain

When God turns grey the sky

No man can make it blue again

Nor raise the sun on high

No man can soften hearts of stone

Nor cause to understand

The deeds of One born flesh and bone

Godís Word and mighty hand

Where Jesusí Ghost can have His way

Where man takes second place

No sheep of God will ever stray

No child will fall from grace

The future would be more than bright

If eyes were not on man

But on Godís Son Godís Guiding Light

On true salvationís plan

Yet for a while the proud walk tall

The foolish man seems wise

Though without Christ; theyíll surely fall

Beneath the Judges eyes

When man obeys The risen Lord

No one will face defeat

But live; walking in one accord

With God and lifeís elite.....

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.
