There Was A Time When Our Family Prayed…


There was a time… 

When our family prayed!

No one seemed to care…

 How long we stayed!


There was a time…  When God’s message

of salvation was accepted.

But the older we got. 

This message was neglected!


There was a time …  When all we had,

 was a black and white t.v...

But we had God’s love in our house. 

That was enough for me!


There was a time …  When we struggled

with many things...

But we were content with

the love that our God brings!


There’s  today…  And the direction

that many families are going...

Many heartaches and brokenness

appear to be showing!


May I suggest that we all seek

 a Godly way of living?

And accept the kind of life

 that our Lord is giving?


I think about where we are now. 

And the journey ahead…

 Jesus is our living

water and daily bread!


I hope and desire that

this message isn’t lost!

We need to lay our every need

 at the foot of the cross!

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!
