Lord, Help My Dad!

Lord, Please Help My Dad!



 



Lord, on behalf of my dad,



 I do apologize.



He’s saying things that aren’t



healthy and wise.



 



There’s a lot of unforgiveness



that’s being said.



He’s twisting scripture with his



feelings instead.



 



He’s carrying a lot of hurt from his divorce.



He makes decisions from an



unscriptural source.



 



It’s not up to us to quickly cast a brother “out.”



This isn’t what Christian living is all about.



 



We’re to love our friends and enemies the same.



We’re to conduct our lives in honor



 of Jesus’ name!



 



We’re to be his loving example



 in thought or deed.



We’re to be there to help those



 in time of need.



 



If we let our own anger and feelings



 get in the way…



We’ll have to answer to God



 on that judgment day!



 



Let’s join Christ’s loving family



and do our part.



Let’s speak in love and kindness



 from our heart!



 



Let’s leave our past and bring



 it to Jesus’ feet!



Let’s allow his loving kindness



to make us complete!



 



Let’s be Christ’ example in everything



we endeavor.



Let’s be there to reign with him



 in heaven forever!

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!
