Are We So Dumb?.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

� � � � Are We So Dumb?.....

Why do we seek our own desire?

Why do we walk astray?

Why don�t we seek a little higher?

And walk Salvation Way

The devil knows man�s selfish mind

Our lust his; ways to learn

He knows if we would die still blind

With him; we�d surely burn

So why continue life as fools?

Believing Satan�s lie

Why do we choose to be his tools?

And bar The Way on high

Are we so dumb, our eyes so dim?

We�re sightless of our goals

We risk much more than life and limb

We risk our very souls

Submit to Jesus� outstretched hand

Surrender to His love

Allow God�s Seed within our land

Bear fruit for life above

Its not so hard God�s Way to see

Life�s Truth to comprehend

God�s guiding Lamp He gives us free

If but our knees would bend

Let Jesus turn life�s wayward tide

In Him! The Truth to see

Revealing filth we�ve sought to hide

Removing life�s debris

Escape the sword of Heaven�s wrath

Dismiss your life of crime

Refuse to walk the devil�s path

Seek Jesus whilst there�s 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.
