Try to Focus On Jesus!

Try to Focus On Jesus!


Have you been hurt by

"church and religion?"

By a "false" hope,

Or the wrong direction?


Have you been "chewed out" by

 a fellow church member?

The faults you have... 

They seem to remember.


Some who wish to pray

and worship on Sunday.

Are often a different person

come Monday.


Some who claim to be

"righteous and holy."

Are simply full of

"hot air and baloney."


Focus on Jesus!  Look beyond

 the "church crowd."

Read his holy word...

And shout it out loud!


A relationship with Jesus is the

most important thing.

Into your life... His righteousness

he will bring.


The "religious vanity"

will simply go.

Once Christ has control over

your thoughts and soul.


Christ is the answer!

His word 100% true.

You're precious to him...

How much he loves YOU!

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!
