I Heard A Knock


Lord you’re my God, when I fall which I do

there are just times when it’s hard to get up.

You are there sending me, that silent knock at my heart.

When I hear that, I can respond or keep the door locked.

When I try to go and forget your knocking

the blocks of guilt rides heavy on my heart.

You will not leave me because I have fallen

just because the devil said” it’s easier to get up.”

My God said” I can do All things through Christ Jesus that strengthens me.”

This poem was not written to criticize you

this poem was written for me.

If there is anyone, who feels that they just can’t get up

because of mistakes that might have been made.

This is the lie the devil wants you hear

he will only throw fear doubt at your door.

You can stay in that spiritual state

but God will still be knocking asking “may I come in? ”

Why because God Loves you and me

John 3: 16 said For God so love the world

that He gave His only begotten Son

that whosoever calls on Him shall be saved.

I am so glad to know when I fall

Jesus is always right there, wanting to heal my broken soul.



Take this poem how your soul feels led, I just hope this poem will bless you

    Nice poem with real feelings, getting up is hard when one battles feelings of self worth because of past sins drifting in with the tide, Jesus is indeed the key, in the eyes of the sun a black hole hides...looking at you and me. There our sins stay out of reach...beneath the molten sea. (Report) Reply

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
