Why Is God Often the Last Choice?

Why is it that God is often the last one people turn to?

People should trust and serve him because they want to!


We’re often told that acknowledging him is “unconstitutional.”

It’s no wonder why many are confused and “delusional.”


Without God, so many try to fill life’s “empty void.”

But whatever means it takes for life to be “enjoyed.”


Many spend a lot of money as they indulge in their sins.

But too many times, their life is in shambles in the end.


Let me ask you; “what is it in life that you’re looking for?”

Does it seem like life is just one “big revolving door?”


If you want a solid foundation to build your life on…

It’s the God of creation that you need to depend on!


Only he can give eternal joy and love that you’ll never find.

Only he can bring wholeness and peace to your mind!


His word provides truth and POWER for all eternity!

It’s only his knowing his word, that you’ll find security!


Isn’t it about time for you to come and trust him?

All it takes is a little faith to come and believe him!


He’s the God of today and tomorrow!  And remains true!

He stands at your heart’s door, and waits for you!


Your life can be cleansed, by Christ’ atonement!

Why not make him your first choice?

 This very moment!

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!
