Christian Poetry-By Greg Millhorn

THE ENGINEER

 

The engineer drives his train

Down many miles of track

He thinks about the train’s history

And his mind starts wondering back

 

Before the planes and trains

And automobiles too

Hope was the vehicle

To see people through

 

He thought about hope in Jesus

In Him there is God’s truth

Then remembering prayers to God

Even as a youth

 

Prayers answered long ago

To let him drive the train

Then blowing the train’s whistle

Praise the Lord is it’s refrain

 

The engineer is joyful

Remembering all these things

And giving glory to God

For the happiness that He brings

 

 

IN JESUS THEY’RE REASSURED

 

Tears of sadness fell

From the little boy’s face

Thinking he was the cause

Of his family’s disgrace

 

His mother and father

Could not get along

Not knowing God to guide them

Everything just went all wrong

 

The boy looked back in sorrow

And then made up his mind

This will not happen to him

True happiness he will find

 

He found the love of Jesus

And joy entered his life

Then the Lord answered his prayers

Giving him a godly wife

 

Both serve and love the Lord

According to God’s word

When trouble come at them

In Jesus they’re reassured

 

 

POINTS OF LIGHT

 

Looking at yourself

Who can this be

Reflections in a mirror

What do you see

 

Can you hear God’s Word

And then go your way

Deceiving your own self

Be warned of this today

 

Harken, my beloved

God has chosen the poor

To be rich in faith

He’s promised even more

 

Heirs of God’s kingdom

For those that love Him

But double minded men

Themselves they condemn

 

Be doers of God’s Word

Not forgetting who you are

We are His points of light

Shining like a star

 

 

DECISIONS

 

As then thousand years

Is a moment in the grave

My soul is the Lord’s

For it He will save

 

Laying down to sleep

In the wink of an eye

Time is now void

Forever when you die

 

Just passing through life

Is part of God’s plan

And accepting the Lord Jesus

Is restoration for Man

 

Death is a door

All must pass through

Eternity is waiting

God’s word is true

 

Forever in outer darkness

Or eternity with the Lord

Decisions made in this life

Their results are your reward

 

 

INSTRUCT THE WISE

 

When we heed criticism

The wiser we become

Ignoring this true fact

Infringes on deaf and dumb

 

Be open to advice

Burdens are hard to bear

People risking your displeasure

But showing you they care

 

Enthusiasm for righteous living

Should be our desire

Burning in our hearts

Like never ending fire

 

Occupied with ourselves

Only fills our needs

Devotion to God and others

Brings us happiness indeed

 

Instruct the wise man

And the wiser he will be

Lead him to the Lord

And he’ll be wise and free

 

 

FEAR GOD

 

Men’s bitter hatred

Lust and greed

Feeds evil thinking

To satisfy it’s need

 

The human soul

Will force this test

Life with God

Or hell with the rest

 

What folly this is

When we do not see

That moment beyond the grave

Starts our eternity

 

When will men learn

Evil has no place

Except in hell fire

Relying on Man’s grace

 

People lift your eyes

Fear God and reverence Him

Be faithful in the Lord

And you He won’t condemn

 

 

SHORT TIME

 

As a burning candle

Is consumed by flame

So is Man’s soul

If rejecting Jesus’ name

 

Life is so short

When looking back to see

That young person there

Was really me

 

On our way to glory

Or the other place?

One brings us happiness

The other, suffering and disgrace

 

The gnashing of teeth

While burning in pain

Awaits all people

Covered in sin stain

 

The gift of God

Is eternal life

Away from all heartache

And bitter strife

 

 

NEVER GIVING AN INCH

 

The Lord kept this man

For his testimony I’m sure

Proving that through God

He’s able to endure

 

Stopping by to see me

Each and every day

Singing praise to the Lord

All along his way

 

He is touching many lives

While in such terrible pain

His sickness is spreading

Finally going to his brain

 

Never giving an inch

Just trusting in the Lord

Saying, the Lord will heal me

This body He’ll restore

 

The man walks by faith

And not by his sight

What an example for others

While walking in God’s light
