Are You Taking God for Granted?

Are You Taking God For Granted?


I believe that often we take

God “for granted.”

Thinking that on this earth,

 we’re “forever planted…”


Scripture says our life is like a spark in the sky.

We’re here today...  Tomorrow we may die…


“Where your treasure is”…  “Your heart will be!”

Have you thought about where you’ll spend eternity?


Everything we need…  God’s given us already…

When death knocks at your door, 

will you be ready?


Your soul has been purchased.  Bought and paid!

The gift of eternal life has,

through Christ, been made!


The breath you breathe...  Each day you awake.

Please consider Jesus as your lord… 

Before it’s too late!


Each day we have is a gift from God above…

Another chance to be filled with HIS love!


Won’t you take time to consider life eternal?

So your name can be added to heaven’s journal?


This wonderful life that God has given…

Why not allow him to come in,

and change how you’re livin’?


He can change and make you a new person throughout!

He's your creator and is

what life is all about!

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!
