Biography of Bob Gotti

I grew up around Religion and lived without a true knowledge of God, Jesus Christ, or The Bible for the first 29 years of my life, although I believed I was a Christian. It wasn't until my wife (who was saved, but, never grew in the Word) started to witness to me, about 3 years after we were married, that I picked up a Bible for the first time in my life and was miraculously saved after reading the Gospel of John. I have been a Christian since the spring of 1986 and use April 1st as my Spiritual Birthday, to remind myself that The Lord Graciously reached down and saved a fool like me.

I don't consider myself a poet, as my poems come right of of my prayers to God, usually on my way to work, after I had a small conflict at home or my heart is just welled up with concern. I hope that all of the Praise goes to God and that He can simply use my small talent (which came from Him) in a bigger way to either be a Blessing to all of my fellow brethren, or draw unbelievers into His Wonderful Light.

My first poem was on Visitation, which is very dear to my heart, and after posting it on poetry.com, I continued to use the 20 line format to post on their site. With this one poem published, I was moved to continue to post the poems that I truly thank God for, as I am not a poet by trade, and give all the Glory to Him. My thoughts at this point go to a beautiful song, by Nancy Steinman, where one of the verses she says 'Even my Praise comes from You', as she is singing to The Lord.

I just thank The Lord for guiding me and pray that my poems can move people closer to The Soon Coming Kingdom. In His Love, Bob Gotti

'For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared
To all men. It teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and
Worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and
Godly lives in this present age, while we wait for The
Blessed Hope-the glorious appearing of our great God
And Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to
Redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself
A people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.'
(Titus 2: 11-14)

In Christ's Love, Bob Gotti

Behold The Lamb

We are told to behold The Lamb, sent to the earth by the great I Am,
To behold the very Lamb of God, who will soon rule with an iron rod.
He was the Lamb not many knew, was sent to earth for me and you,
The One who left a Glorious Throne, only to be rejected by His own.

The Lamb who took away our sin, although none was found in Him.
Indeed the only blameless sacrifice, was the God Man Jesus Christ.
Behold God’s amazing sacrifice, given so we may have Eternal Life,
The Lord above paid
