Whom Do You Trust and Believe In?

Whom Do You Trust and Believe In???


In this “enlightened” day that we live in…

Who is it that you really believe in?


Is it someone in the area of entertainment?

Or a professional team with excitement?


Perhaps it’s a famous leader of the day?

Or maybe someone who passed your way?


There are many people for one to choose from.

I suppose, the “bad ones,” you can excuse them.


If there’s someone you’ve chosen to believe…

What kind of real hope have you received?


Many promise many good ideas and dreams.

There’s a lot who promise a lot of “cool things.”


Whatever you choose, you’ll one day be mistaken.

One day, you’ll stand alone, and be “forsaken.”


That day you stand before God will be the final curtain.

Jesus is the only thing in this world that is certain!


Flee the false gods and run from the world’s idols!

Come now and get in tune with the Holy Bible!


It’s Jesus that you need to put your faith in!

You need to put your hand in his and trust him!


He will never disappoint you, or let go of you!

He died on the cross, because of his love for you!


Won’t you come and leave this world behind you?

It wasn’t I, but God’s precious love that found you!


It’s on the arms of Christ that you

need to be leaning!

Only he can give your life true

 purpose and meaning!

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!
