What God's Will Is...

What God’s Will Is…


Some get wrapped up into visions and dreams.

They think that this is what God’s will brings.


When it comes to God’s will,

they make assumptions.

But, too often, it’s a man-made “presumption.”


They often think of God’s will

 as simply “their own.”

Have they humbly repented

 before his holy throne?


Have they actually applied his

 word and lived buy it?

Living and obeying his word daily…

 Have they tried it?


I want to be careful to know what God’s will is.

I must carefully listen to the wisdom he gives.


Seeking his divine will I want to be my goal.

It’s not just something that “soothes my soul.”


I want Holy Spirit conviction

 to come deep within.

May I seek repentance and forsake my sin.


May I humbly lay every weight

at the rugged cross.

If I don’t surrender to Christ,

I’m forever lost!


Jesus, may your will be done in my life today!

Help me to seek your direction in all I do and say!


Only through Godly living, can my life

 be really blessed!

Listening to and obeying God’s will

is always the BEST!

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!
