If Not for God... Where Would I Be

If Not for God…  Where Would I Be?


If not for God, I wouldn’t

be here today!

May he be honored

in what I do and say!


If not for God, I’m not sure where I’d be.

I’d be lost today and

 for eternity!


If not for him staying close to my side…

I wouldn’t survive the evil tide!


If not for his love being faithful and true…

I don’t know what in the

world I’d do!


If not for his son who

 bled and died…

I’d have no chance to be sanctified!


If not for his son who died for me…

I’d be like a ship lost at sea!


Thank you my God, for being there!

Thanks for taking

the time to care!


Thanks for this, and so

 much more!

You make life worth living for!

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!
