God's Love Keeps No Record of the P

God’s Love Keeps No Record of the Past!


I asked a brother if he would please forgive me.

I said; “I’m sorry!”  But he wouldn’t believe me.


Something happened, and he was “offended.”

He didn’t want our friendship to be amended.


I tried to share with him 1 Corinthians chapter 13.

He was upset, and scripture didn’t “mean a thing


You see, this kind of action happens to many times.

It happens a lot in church.  Just “read between the lines.”


God’s word speaks of his love, and many read it!

But they seldom apply his word, when they need it!


When it comes to God’s love, it seems quite “convenient.”

To say we really love others, but actually don’t mean it!



Do we throw out God’s word, when someone gets us upset?

Is it Christ’ example of love,

that we fervently neglect?


I think it’s time we all come to Jesus for his love divine.

And ask for his powerful love

to daily cleanse our mind!


It’s only God’s love that can change us

and make our heart pure!

It’s only his love that make our relationships secure!


Shall we walk in his love?  

The best way we can?

Let’s be his shining light!

 Through the darkness in the land!

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!
