Doing That Which Uplifts and Encour

Doing That Which Uplifts Others…


Seldom do I see others “building up.”

But rather “tearing down.”

So much hurt and pain amongst families

can be found.


It seems like many just try to “bring up to the past.”

Instead of building up a relationship

 that will last!


What happened last month or last year

 “sticks” as a “reminder.”

It’s no wonder why many families

refuse to be “kinder.”


A harsh word said, or an “offensive” action taken.

Soon, this individual is “cast out” and forsaken.


What in the world are people trying to be?

We all need to walk in Christ’ love…  Can’t they see?


I’ve sinned and “offended” someone along the way.

I’m glad that Christ doesn’t “cast me away!”


What if Christ treated us the way we treat our brother???

We’d all be thrown out and

“tossed into the gutter!”


Can’t we at least try to apply 1 Cor. Chapter 13!

My God’s love and grace is sufficient



God’s love can do for you what no other love can do!

It can bring a new meaning

in the words; “I love YOU!”


Isn’t it about time we all bow our heads in prayer…

And try to be more of Christ’ example

to show we care!


If we don’t try God’s healing process in

“mending a broken heart.”

Then “where in the world” is it going to start?


Uplifting and encouraging others begins

with you and me!

It’s the only way… That in Christ Jesus.. 

We can be FREE!

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!
