God's Performance Review...

God’s “Performance Review?”


 


If God were to hand out a


“performance review…”


What would he say


about me and you?


 


Would this report acknowledge


 a desire and commitment to him?


Or would it be filled with a deep


 disappointment within?


 


Would it include; “job well done.”


 “You’ve met my expectations…”


“You’ve lived a life of sacrifice


 and dedication…”


 


The times we’ve failed him.


 I’m sure there would be many.


But those who are sold out to him.


 Would there be any???


 


I pray that if it’s our desire


 to enter heaven’s rest…


We’ll commit to God and


at least try our best…


 


What profits a man if he gains the world,


 but loses his soul?


We must live for Jesus,


Only he can make us whole!


 


God is the only one we’ll stand before


 at the judgement throne...


Let’s allow him to rule and reign


 in our hearts and homes!

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!
