Tomorrow, Today.....

          Tomorrow, Today.....

Through Christ; tomorrow, can be today

A miracle of life

We need but turn, walk Jesus’ Way

And seek to be His wife

 

If pleasing God’s our chosen cause

When love rules deep inside

He’ll open wide eternal doors

To be a spotless bride

 

As those who’ll heed Salvation’s plan

Who’ll walk the extra mile

Cast down the wayward side of man

Through total self denial

 

Who’ll seek The One who’s always been

Who’ll Christ God’s Lamb pursue

Placing first, last and in-between

In everything they do

 

No wealth on earth can buy a jot

No eye can ever trace

What foolishness has quite forgot

And God alone replace

 

Eternal life, eternal bliss

A crown of gold to wear

Life’s living light His loving kiss

Beginning with a prayer

 

But who’d believe this wondrous thing?

If Christ walked not before?

What cunning lie would Satan sing?

To close to man Life’s Door

 

Through Heaven’s Lamb, we’ve all today

Once self begins to bow

When heartfelt and earnest pray

We’ll have tomorrow now!.....

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.
