Our Nation Is Divided!

Our Nation Is Divided!


Jesus said that a house divided cannot stand.

See this happening throughout this land!


It seems like no one can get along.

As they seem to fight over right vs. wrong.


Our courts seem to add to much confusion.

As they often misinterpret the constitution.


Often, the political parties attempt to “fight it out.”

“Blaming each other,” seems to be what they’re about!


We hear of many families with broken hearts…

Any kind of commitment seems to be “falling apart.”


Without God as a foundation, we’re a “sinking ship.”

We’re doomed!  It’s like taking a “one way trip.”


A trip to disaster! By a wicked and evil force!

That further drives this nation way off course!


What shall this country do?

 If it’s foundations are destroyed?

The freedoms we have… Will no longer be enjoyed!


The answer is in Jesus Christ!  And him alone!

We need him to “rebuild” our government and homes!


We need to come together and seek God above!

And ask him to heal our nation with his mercy and love!


If we come to him and confess our many sins!

This is where the “rebuilding” of our nation begins!


We must focus on the power and message of the cross!

Without God in our lives, we’re forever lost!

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!
