Love! Need I Say More?

Father, I know
You will immeasurably bless
Those who read
This poet’s address.

For I was once
A dirty and broken soul.
The life I lived
Held thoughts untold.

Hard to guess,
Or even for others to see
The internal workings
Of my heart, unhealthy.

You, Lord, I praise!
You didn’t cast me a stone.
This heart You healed,
And made Yourself known.

There is nothing, Lord,
That goes by You unseen.
Sin tries to use hiding,
And secrets, as its means.

Let shushing and hushing
Be a thing of the past.
No one will You lose
Who to Your promises holds fast.

Evildoers, you are not
Pulling one over on Him!
Mend your ways, call on Him,
And repent of your sin!

His book tells you in advance
How the story will unfold.
Give it up, try your hand at love,
Please, give it a go!

Stick figure holding heart and handing it to the cross

God will use any and every
Harm done toward good.
This battle against innocence
Is another day in the ‘hood!

Problem is, some are confused
At the battle location.
Let me clear up this ‘hood,
Yup, it’s this earthly nation.

Lo and behold,
There is coming a day,
When evil will finally
Be put in its place.

So, I for one
Will look toward hope, live!
Nothing on earth
That Jesus can’t cope with.

You know what they say.
Yup, no time like today
To grasp at the rope
Being sent to you this day.

Don’t be a prisoner,
This life, it is too short!
Jesus paid our ransom.
Need I say more?
