What Would You Say?

What Would You Say?


 


If you could talk to God


this very day...


What kind of things would


you have to say?


 


Would you point out to him your


brother’s faults and imperfections?


The times you were offended


by his transgressions.


 


Would you tell God how much


better you are then me?


“God, I’ve been so good...”



Can't you see?


 


 God knows your heart


—don’t try to be kidding.


He knows the way you that you’ve


really been living.


 


He knows your thoughts... 


Your actions and every intent.


Don’t blame your brother for his faults!


You need to repent!


 


By the way you choose to love some


& others not forgive...


You alone will have to give an


account of how you live.


 


Please talk to God in


humbleness and prayer.


Be filled with his love, compassion


and his wonderful care.

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!
