BACK TO HIS ROOTS

The man had drifted far,

Away from the Bright Morning Star…

Needed reboots

Closer to his roots,

More study was willing to start.

Rooted deep in the Bible,

Lost sight of it, threatened survival…

Hour by hour

The wilting flower

Of his love shrunk as a low tide will.

Not just for poetry,

But renewed life, you see…

Spirit-led

By Christ his head,

Brought back to reality.

Not that he’s attained,

Like Paul, it must be maintained….

Study and prayer–

Find it somewhere–

Good Christian fellowship claimed…!

Walking in Spirit is tough,

Not talking with God enough…

Listen–less talk—

Improves the walk

Walking in dim light, the trail is rough!

–Jonathan Caswell

Opinion…based upon the author’s renewed appreciation for his roots in the Holy spirit and in prayer.

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?.
