I profess His Word even though despised,
Not being of this world or been fantasized;
My prayer is that He not take them away,
But shielded from evil each and every day;
They are not any more of this world than I,
Make them Holy by the Word having no lie;
For the Word of God is the truth and light,
That will bring to life some hidden insight;
Even though as a messenger in this world,
I write poetically as His plan be unfurled;
And for Him I shall continue righteously,
Until all are truly holy I write diligently.
Our days are number on this planet earth,
Wondering exactly about our true worth;
The reason we are intended in this place,
Being a productive part of the human race;
Everyone has been tasked under His plan,
In doing something like no one else can:
The Word of God opened my eyes to see,
A Christian poet that I was called to be.
