America Needs to OVERCOME and Belie
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

America Needs to OVERCOME and Believe the Bible!


America now has a commander-in-chief.

Who wants us to “overcome our religious beliefs.”


He speaks words that he should be ashamed of.

And talks about a faith that he rarely speaks of.


As a Christian, I want to honor Christ’ name!

And shouldn’t do things that bring him shame!


As an American, I’ll serve my country and God too!

But I need to obey what the Bible says to do!


The Bible reminds us of the sacrifice Christ made!

A way to salvation, through him, was paid!


Our lifestyle shouldn’t “cheapen” his death on the cross.

If we obey and follow him, and count the cost!


We need to be separate from the world’s lust and idols!

And focus our attention on the God of the Bible!


Through Christ, we can OVERCOME the evil that prevails.

And trust in a God…  Who will never, never fail!


Through Christ, we can OVERCOME the wickedness within!

And though his blood, be cleansed from every sin!


May everyone be reminded in the coming days ahead!

Without Godly living… 

We’re simply “spiritually dead!”


It’s time to wake up America!  And answer God’s call!

We may think we’re mighty!

  But we’re going to FALL!

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!
