HAVE SOME JOY!

One out of ten may enjoy poetry,

Maybe even less!

But you may know why,  why that would be

What I do the best!

.

.

Ever since my very first poem,

Accepted I have had the bug!

Even King David’s poetry, Psalms,

Not stuffed under the rug!

.

.

Sold billions of copies, in a Book,

Bible, you should know

Will sell even more until Jesus comes

Helps Christians to grow!

.

.

Millions have memorized Psalm 23

“My Shepherd…” God is near!

He leads, He feeds!  And satisfies!

What then have I to fear?

.

.

Millions take comfort, it is written,

“I will fear no evil!”

Your rod and staff comfort bring

Need not fear the devil!

.

.

Sure he tempts but he cannot force!

Christ’s table satisfies!

Better than Satan has to offer!

With his tempting lies!

.

.

What can be better than Heaven above?

Devil may promise joy,

Sure, the bilious kind ever ending with

Hangover to annoy!

.

.

And in the end, what promise have I?

Of satisfaction?  Hell!

Heaven alone, everlasting joy!

What else can ring my bell?

.

.

Or keep the bells of Heaven ringing!

It is so hard to conceive

Of a God who longs to have us

Home!  Cannot wait to receive!

.

.

Of course, the place He has prepared for us

So impossible to fathom

When God, like, passes a plate way beyond

Anything known,says, “have some”!

.

the Sam 01.17.12

HIS WILL UNTIL

His will until conflict, tragedy, forevermore

Gone once safe on that Heavenly Shore!

.

Child of God is safe even then

Psalmist experienced what God did contend!

.

So we like King David can know this is true!

From down within Shepard King knew.

.

We can know, also, so many centuries later!

God is on the throne still!  Tell now, who is greater?

.

Through tempests, wars keeping power still!

Keeps!  How and why because it is His will!

.

Worlds, the very atmosphere He created!

Endless space, hurricane you can see and hear!

.

Storms in violence do show a bit

Of His Power, who created it!

.

All in the heavens and surely the earth

We He formed in His own image in our birth!

.

One difference we are aware, He always is!

What more can express Almighty?  Who is!

.

Was a time when God was not?

Existence, always!  Forever cannot blot.

.

Cannot time presence that always was!

Or fact that we were made from dust.

.

Never was a time when God was not.

Pre-existence!  Forever!  Cannot blot!

.

Whose time presence that always been?

God the Father, God the Son, and Holy Spirit!

.

How can this be?  Then how miracles we see?

Look around!  Miracles will always be!

.

Life we call it not everlasting yet,

Exception spirit living on it is set!

.

By God’s Spirit alive and vibrant still!

Who then with fish did the oceans fill?

.

Spirit of man that no one can kill!

Until forever!  Or when God says until.
