Give Me the Strength...

Give Me the Strength...

God...give me the strength to stand
up against the evil tide.
May I be a Christ-like example
for God's "winning side."

Standing up for what is right
is often hard to do.
I must do it God...if I'm going
to be a follower of YOU!

You are an awesome God who
knows each person's heart.
But, so much of our moral fabric
has been "ripped apart."

God looks down from heaven and sees
our wickedness and shame.
As so many have ignored his word
and cursed his HOLY name.

Jesus--what must I do to reach
this lost and dying nation?
As a wave of evil spreads and
destroys your creation?

I must tell others of your grace
and redemptive power.
I must act quickly.
with each passing hour!

His judgement is coming.
Make no mistake.
It's time to receive his salvation..
.the hour's growing late!

As our nation needs a mighty
Holy Ghost delivering.
Help me to help others to be
ready for Christ' appearing!

One day soon, Jesus Christ
is coming again!
Even so Lord Jesus...
come quckily... Yes and Amen!

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!
