If I Had to Live...

If I Had to Live …


 


If I had to live just on the love


 you’ve given to me…


Where will I be


spending eternity?


 


If I had to live on the time


 we’ve spent together…


Am I someone you’d want


 to be with forever???


 


If I have an ambition.  A dream.  Or a vision…


Would you care?  And stop by to listen?


 


If I have a heartache.  Or a burden to share…


Are you someone, who’d stop by and care?


 


If I need someone to be Christ’ example…


Could you give me some of his love? 


 Even a sample?


 


If I had to spend my life all over again…


Are you someone that I could call; “friend?”


 


If I came to your church


 this Sunday morning…


Would you welcome me?


 Or give others a “warning?”


 


If I were to ask for a few minutes


of your time today…


Would you do it?  Or tell me “to go away?”


 


If you could sit down and think


 about what I’m saying…


Perhaps the Holy Spirit would


compel you to start praying…


 


Praying for a compassion in reaching


 those who surround you.


The many lost souls you know


 just may astound you!


 


The message of God’s grace


 needs to be daily expressed…


That through your living for Christ… 


Others may be blessed!

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!
