He knows he cannot trust feelings,

Nor any associated dealings…

Feelings are tools

To make us fools,

Unadvised revealings!

His feelings are bound three ways,

Complicating all his born days…

Blood sugar, depression

And memory repression

Three icebergs float in the haze.

He ponders the creature, Man,

How can God love him as He can…

From animal stock,

Chosen to unlock

Wonders at the Master’s hand?

Counseling with Christian content,

He believes is Heaven-sent…

Adjusting to Him,

Not unbelievers’ whim

Is what his healing has meant.

–Jonathan Caswell


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?.
