What's Done For Christ Will LAST!

What’s Done for Christ Will Last!

Life is too short....

It goes by fast!
What you do for Christ,

is a treasure that will last.

I know we get busy with our house

and nice cars,
food on the table, plenty of

"cookies in the jars."

We forget the time we spend

 with our family.
Trying to live our life,

 thinking we're happy.

We often want to show off "our"

possessions and charm.
But may be walking in spiritual

 danger and harm.

When our true love is not Jesus,

 but things!
It could be our wealth,

 and the “allusion” it brings.

On the inside, we're empty,

if God's love we're without…
We often forget what God’s way

 of living is about.

Return to your first love!

Don’t hesitate...
Do it now....

The hour's growing late!!!

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!
