It Feels So Good without (1)

It Feels So Good without

We canít escape the coming wrath

If we donít seek the Door

If we donít walk upon the path

Heaven has lain before

The Door is Christ! Salvationís Way

The servant King on high

The Shepherd of Godís flock astray

The Lamb God gave to die

Before Christ died to set us free

There was no way to know

But loveís obedience brought to see

The only Way to go

Salvation presents spiritual sight

To eyes that once were blind

Like brother Paul, we see the Light

The facts that heal the mind

Darkness would hide, what Christ would tell

I laughed, when others told

Saying I too was bound for hell

If I left Jesus cold

I shrugged it off as quite absurd

Still blind in wayward sin

The Truth of Christ Iíd never heard

And failed to let Him in

Surely; I thought these fools were sad

That they should come to me!

Yet Heaven saw the need I had

And Jesus came to free

One may not know how Jesus came

Or know the reason why?

But since He did! No more the same

I know Iíll never die.....

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.
