This blog was formed out of my deep conviction that God is the only true light, and that He has sent His Son Jesus Christ to bring this true light to a darkened world. Without this true light I am convinced that no individual will have eternal life. As a believer in Jesus Christ I am commanded by Him to spread His gospel to those who do not know Him. This I do in the way that He has enabled me to ..... through my poetry and songs.

Have you heard?
Get into the boat child
Sometimes it is as if I am swimming in deep water, exhausted, whilst my Father is rowing a boat alongside me saying, 'Get into the boat child, let me take you to your destination.'
Have you heard about God's Son who gave His life for everyone
who suffered there at Calvary that you and I might be set free?
Belief in Him will bring release from all that robs you of your peace
So just reach out and take His hand, don't build your house upon the sand
the door will open if you knock .... then you can build upon the ROCK
'Come to me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will gve you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.'
Matthew ch.11 vx.28-30
The sinner's prayer
You didn't come for the righteous - for the sheep as white as snow
the ones that are whole and healthy - who know which way to go
No Lord You came for the sinner - the sheep that went astray
You came to guide him back to God along the narrow way
Lord here stands a sinner, a lonely child of the night
I walk the paths of darkness where there is no guiding light
my feet are bruised and bleeding as I stumble down life's track
the brambles cut across my flesh.... there's no coat upon my back
My hands are torn and calloused as they push aside each thorn
my clothes give no protection, - they are tattered and worn
I'm lost in my inheritance of pain and misery
Lord I call upon Your name ..... Jesus save me!
The Lord's reply
'I hear you child ' says Jesus - ' your cry is in my ears
my heart is burning with your pain, my face wet with your tears
these feet have felt your bruises - my hands were torn for you
those thorns were laid upon my head, my stripes were for you too
Yes child I hear you calling from your dark and miry grave
'twas for this very reason that God sent me to save
So lift your eyes my lost one, don't look at earthly things
look to the Son of Righteousness - there's healing in my wings
Don't bear your heavy burdens and remain among the dead
I came two thousand years ago and bore them in your stead
Just look towards your Saviour, I'll be your guiding light
cast your cares upon your Lord - your God for you will fight
and I'll give you a garment, a new coat for your back
You'll wear my robe of righteousness...... to save you from attack.'
'For I am come not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.' Matthew ch.9 v.13
