True Repentance.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

By Michael P. Johnson
Other Poems by Michael P. Johnson


† † † † † †True Repentance.....

Seeking for time in which to think

Reflecting head in hand

What devilís brew had life to drink?

Would Jesus understand?

Had you a word with Christ to share?

Would Jesus plead your case?

Would God take time to hear your prayer?

Or would He turn His face?

Thank God for Christ lifeís guiding Light

For Heavenís perfect love

For Jesusí strength to fight the fight

And for His Promised Dove

Youíre back, youíre back thank God youíre back

The Truth youíll leave no more

In Christ youíll walk down Heavenís track

Till safely through the door

Until lifeís crown is yours & mine

Until the youngest day

Until we drink with Jesus wine

From truth letís never stray

Though Satanís wares are plain to see

Although his fruit are sweet

To God alone weíll bow the knee

And sit at Jesusí feet

Itís foolish without Christ to die

At last we understand

Oh that the world for truth would cry

She too would know first hand

Sheíll buy no wares the devil brings

Sheíll leave her life of crime

Sheíll learn the song salvation sings

And sing it whilst thereís time.....†

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.
