If You Want - Poem by Michael P. Johnson

If you want joy and endless peace
Be rich as none before
If you want life to never cease?
And keys to God’s front door?

If you want a spirit strong and whole
To wear a crown of gold
To see The Maker of your soul
And miracles unfold

If you want God your life to bless
The Promise Heaven made
Your wayward sin The Lord confess
So love will never fade

If you want passion in your heart
Blessings of Heaven’s King
In life to have a brand new start?
Eternity to sing

If you want to soar where angels are
Where eagles cannot rise
Fellowship with The Morning Star
Both sides of paradise

If you want to see all Heaven smile
Receive all God can give
To walk by grace an extra mile
So others too may live

If you want never more to cry
Your inner man made pure
To know The Way to life on high
And want to want no more

Believe in God believe in Christ
Believe in Jesus’ name
Believe that He was sacrificed
To free your life of shame

    Its tough... While acknowledging all facts based on science and still maintaining faith to God and his power over our lives...

    A lovely poem, gives good insight to what the writer believes God can offer with only belief in the Lord... Though personally the only thing missing from this poem for me is acceptance... that The Lord does as he does seeing the entire picture of our lives.. and we must accept it as the destined path of our lives...

    Yet very much enjoyed and very uplifting,
    Take care,
