Biography of J. D. Martin

J. D. Martin poet

I am a dedicated Christian saved by the grace of God. I was a chief sinner, a lover of self, but God rescued me from the hand of Satan. I now as a servant of God try to put to death the misdeeds of the flesh. I fail often but rise again to fight another day. I formally earned a B.S in Theology and informally audited a Master of Religion worth of Seminary courses. I mention this only so the reader can understand how my theology has developed.

I have spent time teaching, doing apologetics, studying theology, and now I am writing poetry. I am merely trying to benefit the kingdom of God. Some of my poem are original, meaning I was not inspired by an already completed poem. Many others I have used yesterday's poet's both Christian and nonbelievers poems and revised them, rewrote than, or simply took a line from them. The amount of adaptation varies from each poem but I have included the name and author of each poem that I have used in this way.

My goal here is not to be original or a glory seeker. My goal is simply to bless the reader and cause their soul to love the savior more.

With Tears I Sought Him

By night with others sound asleep
They all had peace and rest.
My waking eyes were open wide
To lie I found it best.

I sought him whom my soul did love
With tears I sought him out.
He bowed his ear from heaven above
And stopped my crying mouth.
