Having A Godly Appetite...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Having a Godly Appetite…


“Bodily exercise profits little.”

“Godliness is profitable unto all things.”

I think very few realize the victory,

this truth of God brings.


Scripture also tells us “whatever we sow.”

 “We shall also reap.”

Sin comes with a cost… 

And the price is not cheap!


“What profits a man if he gains

the world and loses his soul?”

What is your ambition in life? 

What is really your goal?


Do you want to live a life entangled

in worry, defeat and despair?

I’m here to tell you that Jesus

 loves you and he does care!


This world can drag you down

and cause you much shame.

Isn’t it time you reach out to Jesus? 

And call on his name?


He’s the reason we can have

an abundant life each day of the week.

It’s the Holy Spirit and God's word

 you need to daily seek


Only Jesus can bring joy and

 nourishment to your soul!

Allow his goodness to enrich you

and to make you whole!


May there be an appetite for Godly living

in what you do and say…

He can change your life and make you

 BRAND NEW today!

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!
