Mountains .

      Mountains to climb.

The weaknesses we all possess

The devil knows them well

He tempts in hope’ that we transgress

And end up bound in hell

 

The battleground is in the mind

It’s here; we’re led astray

Stumbling lost blundering blind

Drifting the other way

 

Such foolishness can none afford

We need to understand

Only through Jesus Christ The Lord

We’ll reach The Promised Land

 

Through faith trusting The Living Christ

Through faith, conquering sin

It matters not how oft enticed

The devil cannot win

 

Overcoming on bended knees

Demons will feel The Flame

We’ll shake them off like canine fleas

To burn in Jesus’ name

 

Each mountain stands for one to climb

To test oft man and child

Who overcome one’s life of crime

Through Christ are reconciled

 

The hatred that we have for one

The malice that we bear

When these we give The Father’s Son

His Kingdom, Christ will share

 

Moving a mountain grain by grain

We’ll foil the devil’s plan

The world may think God’s child insane

But Jesus says, “We can”..…

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.
