Have You Thought About How Short Life Is?


Have you thought about how short life really is?

No one knows for sure how long they will live…


Have you thought about the God who designed you?

His wonderful creation daily surrounds you!


Have you thought about how you’ll spend your time?

As each day, many thoughts go through your mind.


Have you thought about the life you’ve been given?

We’ve all sinned, but can totally be forgiven!


Have you thought about the wisdom

 of God’s word?

The truth of scripture needs to be heard!


Have you thought about kneeling to God in prayer?

He patiently waits… 

And is always there!


God thought about you a long time ago…

Through Christ’ death, he purchased your soul!


God thought about you that day

with Jesus’ death…

Even beyond when Christ took his last breath!


He thinks about you each day that passes by!

He has a mansion prepared for you beyond the sky!


Won’t you give to him your heart’s attention?

He can turn your life into a Godly direction!


The life that you have is here for a brief moment…

Please accept God’s love

and his precious atonement!

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!
