Let's Live Our Life for Jesus!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Let’s Live Our Life for Jesus!

Life is too short!  It goes by very fast!
What’s done for Christ is a treasure that’ll 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 lives pretending we're happy.

We often have possessions and wealth.
But could be living without

“spiritual health.”

When our true love is not Jesus, but things,
We’ll never know what God’s love brings!

On the inside, we're empty… 

 if God's love we're without,
we forget what being a child of God is about.

Let’s return to our first love!  And not wait!
Let’s 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!
