Do Many Have A "God Phobia?"

Do Many Have A “God Phobia?”


I’ve heard of phobias of different kinds.

I’m sure there’s many people

 with “confused” minds.


But there’s one “phobia” that

 concerns me the most.

It’s a “God phobia” that’s drawing so close.


It’s like people have a phobia of

“In God we trust.”

While so many of their lives

 are burdened with lust.


A lust for pleasure and whatever

“pleases for the moment.”

Many are looking for

various kinds of “fulfillment.”


But fearing and obeying God?

 This sounds absurd!

Why should anyone care? 

Much less…  Read his word?


Even prayer seems to be “a thing of the past.”

How much longer will this country last?


What we should fear  Is the wrath

 of God that will come…

For not believing and accepting Jesus… 

His son!


Everything we’ll ever need. 

Has already been provided!

An abundant life with Christ 

can now be decided!


Won’t you accept his gift of life everlasting?

And look beyond human reasoning

and understanding?


Put your faith in God.  And HIM alone!

So you too, can have a place

in his eternal home!

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!
