Let's Irrigate
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † † †Let's Irrigate

With joy, we need to love and care

See life, through patient eyes

The pain of sacrifice to bear

Be like a serpent wise

What blessings God to us can bring?

When open like a book

Weíd call on Christ as Lord and King

To come inside and look

Heíd see the truth behind the smile

Heíd see the inward parts

Weíd bid His Flame to stay a while

To purge our sinful hearts

Thus; to receive His saving grace

Letís seek Godís true delight

Letís speak to Jesus face to face

Letís reach towards lifeís Light

Letís bask within Salvationís glow

Letís drink The Fatherís love

Letís feel The Living Waterís flow

Received through grace above

Letís take The Truth and call Him mine

Letís dwell upon Loveís taste

Let Heavenís Flow lifeís precious wine

Revive our barren waste

Until the bride has drank her fill

Until sheís Jesusí queen

Till all have heard The Fatherís will

Letís turn the desert green

Bring change to soil, the shifting sand

Create a living field

Letís irrigate, infertile land

And reap a fruitful yieldÖ..

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.
