"God's Poet"

An undiscovered prophet's hand. It grasped the feather pen!
To script the words that God would give! A scroll that never ends!

Life's deepest lessons less pursued. And wisdom oft denied.
Yet constantly, he wrote God's thoughts. Hoping to catch one's eye!

"Why is Thy love, so unsought? And truth there left to die?
I wish Thy words would shout from high! That no man could deny!"

"Comfort comes by silent verse. Know not My son My ways?
I left there men, by choice to seek! And find where treasures lay!"

"Your psalms are mine! They will endure! I bid you write once more!
That whispered counsels ever live! In hidden font adored!"

POET'S COMMENTS

God's words in their many manifestations are often hidden from the world. A tattered bible on a secluded shelf masks dusty pages of beautiful revelation; treasures of wisdom unnoticed waiting to be discovered.

As a Christian poet, I have felt the gentle anguish of the undiscovered prophet in this text. The desire and hope of comforting a lost or trouble child of God has been my motivation to write. I can feel God's love within me!

Some of the written inspiration has resulted in tender moments where the reader discloses an intimate experience. "Your poem answered my prayer today! Thank you!" An honest tear emerges as the Spirit bears record that God used me to share His love and comfort one of His children.

In my writings, my inner soul feels like an ancient prophet felt:

"O that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart, that I might go forth and speak with the trump of God, . . . Yea, I would declare unto every soul, . . . come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth." (Alma 29:1-2)

God does not desire this search for Him to be easy! He has asked men to seek earnestly for the truth, and to ponder, and to study, and to pray! He has declared:

"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." (Luke 11:9)

Eternal Life can only come with a personal testimony and a personal witness of the Savior. The scriptures help us know Him! It is in the seeking, that we find Him!

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." (John 5:39)

It is my simple prayer that; God's peace and comfort can come through this poet's pen! And that the whisperings of wisdom that I receive, will stand as a witness of His great love for us now and in the final day!

God Bless!
