The Problem Facing America Today

The Problem Facing America Today…


Do you think about the problems facing America today?

If you had a list of them…  What would it say?


What would be at the top of the list?  Can you name them?

The many problems we have…  Whom can you blame them?


What’s hurting this country, is the problem of SIN!

This is causing so much pain and heartache within!


As this country drifts further on an “unchartered course.”

It’s being driven by a powerful and very evil force!


Many have become fools in God’s watchful eyes.

As they’re often caught up in a “web of lies.”


Our government tries to solve many problems.

Many of Americans wants it to “solve them.”


But no matter how much money is wasted and spent.

The answer is… Simply come to God and repent!


Only God’s word has the antidote for what ails us!

His word is solid truth, and will never fail us!


Only his principles of living, can be a solid foundation!

God himself must be sought out, as a nation!


Jesus is Lord!  His truth and love needs to heal our mind.

He is everlasting, and so forgiving, patient and kind!


Won’t you allow God to be your focus and attention?

And allow his word to give you much needed direction!


There’s nothing for God that’s too difficult to achieve!

Simply reach out to him now…   And BELIEVE!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
