For feelings so deep-rooted,

It takes years before they are booted…

And replaced  by

A realistic eye,

Toward seing the old thought permuted.

It’s a failure so often until

One can rework their will…

My wife was the one

Over years to drum,

Into me and God’s love instill.

I have occasionally fallen,

My old nature comes a-calling…

Myself I must remind

I’m not the crappy kind,

But a child of the King…not a dog run!

One more thing I should note,

None of us can be a hermit billy goat…

Don’t push folks away

When they try to stay,

Gonna need them to cross your heart’s moat!

For you, what can I say,

As God is my witness I pray…

Please listen to friends

Who encourage you no end,

So you will be convinced one day!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
