Like Candles in the Wind.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Like Candles in the Wind.....

Though life was bought on Calvary

Though life is here to find

Though life salvation gives us free

Yet most to this are blind

Against the facts, weíre oft thick skinned

The devilís blinded eyes

Like candles in a blustering wind

Truth flickers ere it dies

Embrace The Truth before life fades

Before forever lost

Before the enemy invades

However high the cost

How swift at times a storm can rage

Thunder through lightning peel

Within lifeís book may turn a page

Where doubt appears real

Through life we need Godís helping hand

In sunshine snow and rain

We need to heed each royal command

To stand against the strain

A house needs Christ as corner stone

The Holy Ghost inside

We dare not walk lifeís trail alone

Without Godís Promised Guide

Too oft salvationís round the bend

Often just out of sight

Even the blind will comprehend

Through Heavenís gift of Light

Salvation waits for heads to bow

For man to bend his knee

The time is here the time is now

For lost blind souls to seeÖ..

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.
