† † † † † Falling apart

ďThe bible says Godís always there!

Godís love will flow in streams

But Iím alone in deep despair

At least thatís how it seems

My life is falling all apart

Thereís nothing I can do

But if my God Youíre in my heart

Then why have I this view?

Depressed and lost, confused inside

I feel Iím standing still

How much my God to You Iíve cried

How much Iíve sought Your will

I feel my shame and take account

But still so much is wrong

Have I the right to climb Your mount?

Do I in Christ belong?

Itís hard for me to carry on

Itís hard to stand the strain

Allow Your will in me be done

Revive my soul again

Thereís none too far You cannot reach

Too lost, that canít be found

Too dumb, the values that You teach

Canít raise to higher ground

The Truth I seek to rise again

In faith to understand

To doubt the doubts that yet remain

And take my Saviourís hand

For that, I canít be on my own

Inside! I need to burn

The Holy Ghost of Christ alone

Can lead to my returnĒ..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.
