What Made This Nation Great?

What Made This Nation Great?

As I reflect on God and his wonderful creationÖ

I think about whatís become of our nation!

What made it great?† Someone may ask.

Think about how long this country will last!

What made this nation great, wasnít itís constitution.

Nor government programs or itís institutions!

It was because our found fathers believed in prayer!

They believed in a God whoís always there!

Our freedoms and laws had a common thread to findÖ

It was because there was God, our creator, in mind!

The ten commandments, we often proudly displayed.

It wasnít long ago, one wasnít ďafraidĒ to pray!

Many were proud to display a cross

†or a nativity scene.

Many now try to remove God,

from just about everything!

Itís time that we all come back to the God of the Bible.

And forsake any kind of love for any false idols!

Itís time we honor God with a deep confession!

And allow Christ to be our lord, with a passion!

Greatness isnít achieved by the outward things

But by the kind of life that living for Christ brings!

Awesome and great is our Lord!† Worthy of praise!

Letís honor his greatness!† All of our days!

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!
