In One for the Heart: A Collection of Poems, Pastor Raye Jones thanks the Lord for His goodness and for saving him at the age of nine at a revival in his hometown church, Lebanon United Methodist Church in Rawlings, Virginia. His poems talk of his faith in God and his belief that it is only through God’s love that we can truly live a faith-filled good life. He writes of the true meaning of friendship and the beauty of eternal love whether for a friend or a family member.
Raye believes the main anchor in his life is the four chapters a day he reads and studies in in his King James Version Bible, along with his daily prayer time, soul-winning, preaching, and teaching. It is through his poetry that he is able to fully express his love for God, Jesus, and his fellow man.
One for the Heart is a collection of verse that expresses one man’s love for God and his fellow man as it explores the true meaning of a true friend.
“Raye Jones is. . . . a great giver to the work of God.”
