As the USA Drifts Further from God.

As the USA Drifts Further From God…


As we decide whether a nativity set can be displayed.

And sue one another over when we can or can’t pray.


America is under attack and has become one huge mess.

Do we still trust in God?  It’s become anyone’s guess!


I’m sure God looks down amid the chaotic confusion.

As our courts try to find some kind of a solution.


As we’ve tried to remove God from our schools…

We’ve come to adapt a new kind morality and rules.


There’s godless laws that seem to be the foundation.

Of a corrupt and very wicked new generation.


We need to get back to God and the ten commandments.

And allow HIM and pray back into our establishments!


Without seeking God and look to his word to be our guide.

We won’t be able to turn back this very evil tide!


There’s a tide of wickedness that’s washed upon our shores.

As many in this country say; “we don’t need God anymore!”


Please come Lord God!  Touch our hearts with fire…

That a commitment to serve YOU would be our desire!


This God of the Bible is the one we need to believe in!

He sent his son Jesus!  We need to receive him!


Let’s return to God!  While the opportunity is here!

Let’s do it now!  His love for us

 is very true and sincere!


Let’s make God this country’s bedrock and foundation!

Without him… We’re lost and doomed as a nation!

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!
