I Put My Faith in Christ! Not Men

I Put My Faith In Christ!   Not Men!



I don’t need to “google,” to know what I believe in!

I put my faith in Christ… 

The day I received him!


I don’t need to find someone to get all the answers.

Or search the yellow pages,

for a belly dancer!


I don’t need to join a club, or a “secret society.”

This would probably lead

to more anxiety!


I don’t need to find a stranger, to share my feelings.

Or to share my thoughts online

that are “revealing.”


When I need an answer or have a concern.

It’s the word of God that

 I shall read and learn!


If there’s a choice to be made, that can’t be decided...

I give it to God.  Everything I need…  He’s provided!


He’s the one I turn to, when I have a problem!

He’s a powerful God! 

And can always solve them!


There’s many things that offer

 “instant gratification.”

But no one can match God’s

 mercy and salvation!


It’s only through Jesus, I can find true sweetness.

He’s brought to my life joy

 and total completeness!

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!
