Spirit…by Carl Gooch

 

to

Spirit

They said he’s damaged, broken
Yes, worthless to the world
That’s what I heard them say.
But they don’t know the Spirit.
They could not understand
I was under God’s command.
Their eyes were too blind to see
That Christ paid the price for me.
And now I live for Him.
Yes, I heard their curses spoken,
I was an alien in their world.
I would not conform to their way.
I was walking, lead by the Spirit.
The world said I was a waist,
Said I was unstable and strange,
Just because I did not give in,
Walking in love I could not change.
They could not understand
I was under God’s command.
Their eyes were too blind to see
That Christ paid the price for me.
And now I live for Him.

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?.
