Do We Have an Example? Even Just One

Do We Have An Example?


Do we have an example of those

 who aren’t afraid to say…

“I’m going to bow my head

 to the Lord and pray.”


Do we have an example of those with a like mind?

To be respectful, courteous and kind?


Do we have an example of those who’ll take a stand?

Against the tide of evil

all throughout this land?


Do we have an example?  Just one person?

Who’ll live by the Bible…

And apply it’s lessons?


Do we have an example of those

 to teach the younger generation…

Living for God will give us a solid foundation?


Do we have an example?  Anyone to be found?

Who’ll spread the gospel

to every city and town?


Do we have an example?  Can we look to YOU?

Who’ll try to live the way Jesus wants us to?


Can we find an example? With the courage to live?

Being Christ example with the power to FORGIVE!


Can we find an example?  Let me make this point.

There’s Jesus!  And he will  NEVER disappoint!


Can we trust this example?  Most assuredly YES!

In HIM can you find a security,

 a peace and a REST!


Will you be an example? And give your life to him?

And experience what it means to be “born again!”


His example of love has can be yours and mine!

Won’t you give HIM a chance?

  While there’s still time?

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!
