Will God Forgive?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

† † † † †Will God Forgive?†

The living Christ is always near

The Holy Ghost sees all

But is God pleased to see me here?

So oft in filth to fall

What thoughts pulsate now through the mind?

What songs invade oneís heart?

How one is fooled confused and blind?

Prising from God apart

Before The Dove of Heavenís flight

With Jesusí bride above

Best seek to climb the hill of light

Walking through life in Love

With heavy heart with quaking soul

Spirit in deep despair

Man needs to rise from out this hole

Oneís sin The Lord to bear

But will our God oneís sin forgive?

Will Jesus stand me by?

Will righteousness allow me live?

Will sin condemn to die?

Will God forgive your jaunt of sin?

Will Christ your shame still bear

Or will again the devil grin?

For what we soon could share

My cup, Iíve filled with Satanís brew

To shame, youíve turned your face

Perverting what was right and true

Contaminating grace

Will God and we be reconciled?

Will Jesus understand?

Will Life dismiss this wayward child?

Will hell stretch forth itís 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.
