One Big Noise

† † † † † †One Big Noise

Your neighbours right and left of you

In front and those behind

Not one accepts your Christian view

So now, you think them blind

Perhaps itís you! The way you live

The way you walk your walk

You say in Christ, youíve much to give

To whom youíre only talk

They hear; you speak, of God above

They see your elegant poise

But lest your deeds are not of love

To them, youíre one big noise

It matters not how great our gift

What talent, we receive

The name of Christ, we need to lift

So others may believe

With grace, lifeís Word we must impart

Beware which seed we sow

If Jesusí loveís not in the heart

How swift our neighbours know

Whatís strange about Godís love to share?

What could in truth, be wrong?

Are Satanís brood, not everywhere?

Teaching their masterís song?

Be not ashamed to do the same

Nor fear to turn lifeís tide

Present your body to The Flame

Help others join the bride

Let grace pour forth lifeís word and deed

Let love now open eyes

Let faith destroy demonic weed

As Jesusí arm arise.....†

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.
