Are You Coming out of or Going int
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Are You “Coming Out Of”  Or “Going Into” the Closet?

 

Across this country, there’s more people

“coming out of the closet.”

Any sense of a Godly direction. 

They’ve seemed to have “lost it.”

 

Often talking about their life. And are not ashamed…

Often bringing dishonor to God’s holy name.

 

Perhaps “going back into the closet,”

is where you need to be.

And think for a minute….

Where you’ll spend eternity.

 

God is still God.  He is righteous but also holy and just.

He asks all to give him our heart. 

Our obedience.  And trust!

 

Perhaps in the closet .    A time of seeking God

should be spent.

A time to have fellowship...   A time to repent.

 

During this time you can spend with God…. 

And HIM alone.

Asking him to bring  peace,

hope and love into your home.

 

This closet can give you a “quiet time.”  A time “to be still.”

A time to seek God.  And to do his will.

 

May you allow your heart, toward HIM

 to be yielded and broken.

And time to meditate on  some of the

words that he’s spoken.

 

If it’s the closet that you truly want to come out.

You can tell everyone:  ”Jesus IS what life is about!”

 

Allow HIM to cleanse and make you whole within…

As his blood cleanses you and takes away every sin!

 

Spending time with God… 

You’ll be glad you did.

His abundance and overcoming life… 

He’ll freely give!

 

God wants to be with you. 

By a “divine appointment.”

Experience his life changing power,

and a GODLY enjoyment!

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!
