A Man Of God Took A Fall...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

A Man Of God Took A Fall…


I knew of a man of God who took a fall.

It seemed to happen, when

he faced “a wall.”


A wall of stubbornness and pride set in.

Before he knew it, he was caught up in sin.


Rather than accept the blame,

he chose others.

He’d often get angry at his

sister and brother.


He chose to ignore what scripture has to say.

He allowed unforgiveness cloud up his day.


“Others must be to blame for choices he made.”

To anger and bitterness, he became a “slave.”


Not knowing the freedom that

Christ has given…

He became a bitter man alone

and unforgiven.


“How could this happen?” 

Was a question asked.

How could this once man of God

spiritually last?


Please don’t let bitterness

reign in your heart.

Don’t allow the peace and love

of Christ to depart.


Being a man of God requires

love and victory…

In being the kind of person

God wants us to be!

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!
