No Wonder

† † † † † No Wonder

Though life and death is in Godís hand

All powerís in His Word

We disobey each royal command

Living this life absurd

Why else has flesh on earth to die?

Why is the curse abroad?

Warring against The Lord on high

Wielding a thirsty sword

Though deep inside The Truth is known

Heard is Godís guiding voice

Most disrespect The Fatherís throne

Making hellís ways our choice

We spit upon The Saviourís face

Treading hellís darkest path

Tossing aside Godís saving grace

To suffer dreadful wrath

So where life brings still forth no root

Where branches fail to be

We canít expect to yield good fruit

Or find a thriving tree

The fruit we bear from lying lips

Actions endorsed to shame

Shadows proclaiming mind eclipse

Blaspheme The Saviourís name

Daring; we sit at Jesusí feet

A stench to God on high

No wonder when Godís wrath we greet

No wonder countless die

To God we need to give our best

Seek guidance from above

Then see if not the world is blessed

Through Jesusí selfless love.....

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.
