God Gave Us Our Life!

God Gave Us Our Life!

Life is very brief, and it goes by fast…
What’s done for Christ, is a treasure that will last.

We get busy with our house and nice cars…
Food on the table, plenty of "cookies in the jars."

We often want to spend time with our family…
Trying to live our lives pretending we're happy.

We need to hang on to the shelter of Jesus’ arm…
And seek his protection evil and harm!

May our true love be Jesus!  Not things!
And enjoy the treasure of life that he brings!

We're empty inside, if God's love we're without,
We need to remember what God’s treasure is about!

Won’t you come to the feet of Jesus?  Don’t wait!
Won’t you do it now?  Before it’s too 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!
