Bear Some Thought

In love we see who reigns on high

Whoís grace will never cease

Through whom one need no longer die

Walking in love and peace

I must admit before Christ came

To death I gave much thought

But now in truth Iím not the same

Seeing The Lordís report

No longer are my thoughts for me!

Through Christ Iíve learned to care

The Truth of God has set me free

With others love to share

With brothers, sisters, neighbours too

This whole wide world in doubt

Godís living Word Iíll share with you

To show what lifeís about

The bibles speaks of long ago

Of Lazarus and hell

The seed of which began to grow

Our sinful world to tell

Now some may hear; but cast aside

The Light within my heart

Yet if but one; can join the bride

Iíll know Iíve played my part

I never gave much thought before

If others lived or died

But with the Key to Heavenís Door

How much to God Iíve cried

To cry in prayer, yes even groan

To care for someone strange

Took Jesus perfect love alone

To bring such wondrous change..Ö

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.
