by Alan Bedworth
I write poetry about Christianity and God. My spirits lift whenever I write. Yet within myself I’m fighting a battle, am I an hypocrite, for not visiting the House of God. Other Christian poets I read, give a feeling of love through the words that they write. I’m struggling to believe that my words have that feel. Yet when my fingers touch the keyboard, I get the feeling I’m being led in my choice of words, and the subjects I choose. Perhaps I’m being too hard on myself. And God is showing me the way to be a good Christian. By using words to aid those in despair. Long may it continue and praise to the Lord.
