The Bible

Ringing through this collections of poems is a great love for the Holy Bible, and a simple theme, that if the Bible is to have any meaning it has to be relevant to our present lives. There are many poems that take the reader to the heart of a Bible story, challenging one to consider the reality of what actually happened, – did Moses see a burning bush that was not consumed, were five thousand really fed from just five loaves and two fishes, was a violent tempest stilled? Were sin, disease and death really overcome? And interwoven with these Biblical accounts in verse or prose are other poems that show a searching out of thought and realisation that can be summarised in the simple knowledge that God is Love.

The earnest expectation is that for any reader any one of these poems may find for them an angel thought that brings comfort and healing, and whispers of God’s love. The lightest touch is all it takes for the gentle kiss of inspiration to overcome the direst circumstance and leave healing, peace and reconciliation.

NEW YEAR 2018: Go On In!

New Year 2018. Go On In!

My life it seemed hemmed in, with walls on every side,
Whichever way I looked, however hard I tried,
What would be my future, could I be set free?
These walls were like a tomb, this not a place to be!

I prayed my heart to God, to show me what to do,
And heard His message clear, “My Love is great for you,
Behold right now, and know, no matter what’s been done,
I am your Father-Mother, and love you as My son.

By My very nature, my arms are always wide,
My door is always open, from Love one cannot hide”.
I listened and obeyed. One step to Him I trod,
My true home found at last. My life at one with God.

That one step took trust, -and I had to hold God’s hand, –
She showed me all Her kingdom, I saw the Promised Land!
God’s Love was there, ’twas all around, freedom it was won.
I felt and knew a truth divine: I stood as God’s own son!

No matter where you are, just one stride lets you in.
Her Love is always there, and takes away all sin.
God can never shutter His constant love for man,
His door is always open. Walk right through now! You can!
