What Would God Say As to How We Liv
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Would God Say About How We Live?


If God were to hand out a

“life review…”

What would he report

about me and you?


Would this report acknowledge

 a desire and commitment to him?

Or would it be filled with

 disappointment within?


Would it include; “job well done.”

 “You’ve met my expectations…”

“You’ve lived a life of sacrifice

 and dedication…”


The times we failed him…

There would be many.

But those who are sold out to him...

 Would there be any???


If it’s truly our desire

 to enter heaven’s rest…

We need commit to God and

 try our best…


What profits a man if he gains the world,

 but loses his soul?

We must live for Jesus,

Only he can make us whole!


God’s the only one we’ll stand before

 at the judgment throne...

Let’s allow him to rule and reign

 in our hearts and homes!

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!
