Just Like Paul.....

              Just Like Paul.....

They thought The Light had struck him dead

As Paul was helped up blind                             Ac.9:8

Damascus gates lay straight ahead

Could healing there he find?

 

What comfort could the future bring?

When God brought forth The Light

Would blindness be a temporary thing?          Ac.9:11

Could time restore his sight?

 

Such thoughts were in the mind of Paul

Till Ananias came                                            Ac.9:10

He said “Arise now brother Saul

God’s Lamb; has bore your shame

 

Receive The Truth, believe The Lord

Be filled with Power on high                            Ac.9:17

Now cast away your wicked sword

Before more brothers die”

 

Like Saul! The Lord can change one’s name

Can change man’s sinful heart

Can with His Holy Ghost and Flame

Give each a brand new start

 

Though liar, thief, killer or cheat

Each shameful act we’ve done

What in this life has brought defeat

There’s victory in God’s Son

 

Through Light; we too like Paul may see

May grow in strength and love

Help heal the sick, set captives free

Through power of Heaven’s Dove

 

Whom God ordains as kings and priests

One’s Jesus takes their load

May live, may fight demonic beasts

On their! Damascus road…..

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.
