        Gifts of Healing

There’s healing in the church today

God makes the body whole

And who from sin would turn away

He’ll heal their troubled soul


Now some believe they’re Spirit led

To heal the sick and frail

Others will try to raise the dead

And wonder why they fail


Searching for truth on Zion mound

The Lord, they question why

Though remedies are sometimes found

Yet still most patients die


Unknown to us The Father’s plan

We try to change our fate

So small are yet the thoughts of man

But those of God are great


Its not for man or church to boast

Nor fame such deeds are done

Miracles through The Holy Ghost

Will glorify God’s Son


God’s mighty arm sets captives free

Gives strength to those who seek

Will help the blind life’s facts to see

Restore the lost and weak


The Lord! Enables by His grace

His wonders to perform –Ac.14:3

To help His children run the race

And shield them from the storm


God takes no pleasure when we die

Through Christ, we understand

But always there’s a reason why

God shows His mighty hand..…

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.
