God Gave Us Our Life!

God Gave Us Our Life…


God gave us our lives for a reason.

That we would obey and please him.


The breath we have each day we live…

Is an opportunity to God to give.


It’s an honor and privilege to serve him.

Though all have sinned and don’t deserve him!


Will you join others in coming before him?

Let’s come and humbly kneel to him.


Won’t you accept him?  In humbled prayer?

Knowing that he loves you and he cares!


For all that he’s done and is going to do...

He does all this,

 because he loves you!


All that you need, you can find in Jesus’ name!

On the cross, he took our guilt and shame!


Thanks be to God!  Who reigns on high!

He give living water and satisfies!


He offers to all love, grace and salvation!

And extends to all

a heavenly invitation!

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!
