God Shouldn't Be Our Last Choice!

God Shouldn’t Be Our Last Choice!


God is often the last choice people make.

Why do people do this,

for heaven’s sake?


God shouldn’t be the last resort we come to.

He loves everyone,

because he wants to!


His loves is endless, and he reigns supreme!

He’s the Lord God and can



He brings strength and love to our

 way of living!

An abundance of grace is what he’s giving!


He should be the first choice

 in all that we do.

Won’t you let him wrap

 his arms around you?


Once you receive a touch

 from his anointed…

You’ll change and not be disappointed!


Please come dear Jesus

and touch us within!

May we trust you and call you;

 “lord and friend!”


Let’s lift our hands to God

 In one voice!

Proclaiming: “serving God

 is our first choice!”

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!
