My Word... Or God's Word?

My Word...  Or God's Word?


As I often watch the daily news.

I hear about different stories

 and different views.


I can't help but to wonder

 when some complain.

Their beliefs aren’t "accepted,"

 but "contained."


Much of what others say,

 brings me a concern...

When it comes to God's word. 

Many have "their backs turned."


While often, they speak of

"tolerance" in their living...

Only their view... Is what they’re giving.


If you disagree with them. 

You're called a "right winger."

While they march to the

 "same drum beat.and singer."


I don't mean to spread a picture

of "doom and gloom."

But a "day of judgment" is

coming very soon!


 God's word...  Which many ignore...

Will be the "compass."  When God

comes knocking at you're door.


What will "your view" be when

 God calls your name?

Will you come to him.

 Or will you complain?


You'll be by yourself at

God's judgment day?

When your name is called. 

What will you say?


God's word says; "My love for

you will never end."

Allow his word to guide you... 

And be your friend!

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!
