Come Close to God!

Come Close to God!


You’ll find God when you seek

 him with all of your heart...

Getting on your knees in prayer

is a good place to start!


 A double-minded man is

unstable in his ways.

He needs direction in

life when he prays.


Come close to God and he'll

Come close to you!

His word will be your guide

in all that you do.


Hunger for his righteousness...

and be filled!

Drawing close to Jesus is

 what God has willed!


He desires close fellowship!

More than words can say!

Come to him now...

With no more delay!


Trust him with all of your heart...

not your own understanding.

In everything...acknowledge him...

and heed his commanding!


Obey his command to serve with

body, soul and mind.

Everlasting peace and love,

 you’ll surely find!


His desire for you to know and

 love him is never ending.

Come to him now... please...

no more "pretending."


Reach out today...

And call on his name!

His love for you is eternal!

And will never change!


Allow him to bring joy to your

heart and true delight!

Please come to him now…

Why not tonight?

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!
