How Shall I Answer God?

How Shall I Answer God?

 

I wonder what I'm

going to say.

As I strand before God

 on judgment day.

 

Everything I’ve done,

will be brought into the open.

What will be my

words spoken?

 

This life I’ve lived.

Will I be ashamed?

That day God calls

out my name?

 

As Christ' work

in my life is applied.

I shouldn’t have anything

I’m trying to hide!.

 

When I answer to him,

 the way  I've been livin.'

I need to walk in the power

of being forgiven!

 

For Jesus... I'll keep trying my best.

I want him to say…

"Enter my haven of rest."

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!
