Being Straight for Jesus!

Being Straight for Jesus!


Many brag that an “alternate lifestyle”

 is the thing to do!

They get excited about trying

 something that seems “new.”


Some like to talk about how they used to be “straight.”

I ask; “what’s going on here, for heaven’s sake?”


Since the beginning, God had one thing in mind.

He created a man and woman to start mankind.


He gave to each sex, distinct parts for a reason.

And commanded us

 to multiply for all seasons.


He gave mankind a purpose and a command.

Regarding HIS way of living,

 for each woman and man.


If being “straight,” seems to really bother you.

I pray the truth of God’s word will touch you!


Straight and narrow is the way to life everlasting.

I hope this answers questions,

many may be asking.


God created us all with one purpose and goal!

Only his power can straighten our lives

 and make us whole!

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!
