Fading Purpose

Have we lost the will to give, our life to God so that He can live,
In our lives each and every day, through all that we do and say?
To be filled with Christís Power, to be used every day and hour,
As Godís witness and His light, in a world, where wrong is right.

Have we lost all spiritual prose, about Christ who died and rose,
And is coming back to earth again, this time in view of all men?
Moving beyond the issues of life, to speak up for Jesus Christ,
To be a voice, over the crowd, being gentle, but spiritually loud.

Have we lost all spiritual sense, as Heíll return with recompense,
Returning with vengeance friend, and bring darkness to an end?
Dark leaders saying all is well, with no mind of Heaven and Hell,
Leading masses from Godís Truth, to a place of Godís reproof.

Have believers lost the urgency, to bring up matters of Eternity,
While upon this fleeting earth, concerns are of temporal worth?
Following men who donít believe, who lie, swindle and deceive,
In this present darkened time, to comply with the devilís design.

Or have we just lost our purpose, in these times, or even worse,
Could it be what we were told, has the love of most grown cold?
Having not the desire to care, or about Truth, be willing to share,
So they can have true prosperity, not of this world, but eternally.

(Copyright ©07/2009 Bob Gotti)


Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!

Hi Joyce, I thank you for your kind compliment and I am humbled truly by your question, which I must answer no; I am simply one who was hungry and after finding The Eternal Bread, desire to share Him with everyone I can.        

I grew up around Religion and lived without a true knowledge of God, Jesus Christ, or The Bible for the first 29 years of my life, although I believed I was a Christian.  It wasn't until my wife (who was saved, but, never grew in the Word) started to witness to me, about 3 years after we were married, that I picked up a Bible for the first time in my life and was miraculously saved after reading the Gospel of John.   I have been a Christian since 1986 and use April 1st as my Spiritual Birthday, to remind myself that The Lord Graciously reached down and saved a fool like me.

I don't consider myself a poet, as my poems come right of of my prayers to God, usually on my way to work, after I had a small conflict at home or my heart is just welled up with concern. I hope that all of the Praise goes to God and that He can simply use my small talent (which came from Him) in a bigger way to either be a Blessing to all of my fellow brethren, or draw unbelievers into His Wonderful Light.

My first poem was on Visitation, which is very dear to my heart, and after posting it on poetry.com, I continued to use the 20 line format to post on their site.  With this one poem published, I was moved to continue to post the poems that I truly thank God for, as I am not a poet by trade, and give all the Glory to Him.  My thoughts at this point go to a beautiful song, by Nancy Steinman, where one of the verses she says "Even my Praise comes from You", as she is singing to The Lord.

I just thank The Lord for guiding me and pray that my poems can move people closer to The Soon Coming Kingdom.  

In His Love, Bob Gotti / http://www.poeticpulpit.com

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
(Proverbs 3:5-6)
