I'm Changed

† † † † † † †I'm Changed

They said Iíd never rise to much

They thought it from the start

But then I felt the Spiritís touch

When Jesus claimed my heart

Though not just heart, but soul and mind

Iím changed! Iím not the same

That child of old is not to find

Not since Godís Kingdom came!

The Lamb of God has set me free

To live The Way I should

My robes of light, no one can see

Whoís not of Jesusí blood

Through Christ, my life has all been changed

Iím up; instead of down

Who else but God could so arrange?

For me to wear a crown

In Truth Iím changed for all to see

Inside Iím all-aglow

I pray Godís Light would shine through me!

That otherís Christ would know

Iím changed I care for others too

I never did before

Truly The Lord has made me new

Right through my very core

To many, it may not sound much

My change is no great deal

But since Iíve felt The Spiritís touch

I know salvationís real

Though still at times the goingís tough

Though lifeís not always fine

Iím changed, and canít say enough

Now love and peace is mine.....

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.
