Please Don't Refuse God!

Please Don’t Refuse God!


God loves us, yet many refuse him!

They simply walk away and ignore him.


They try to pretend he’s not there.

What he’s done, they don’t seem to care.


They seem happy and have what they need.

Any part of the Bible, they never read.


“I don’t need God.”  “He’s in the past.”

“I loved him once, but it didn’t last.”


Don’t fool yourself!  Let’s not be kidding!

There’s a heaven that you could be missing!


There’s a God who loves and knows you name.

It was for you that long ago, Jesus came!


God gave his best.  What did you give in return?

Do  you even care?  Are you at least concerned?


Won’t  you take moment and pray to God?

This shouldn’t be just a “part time job.”


God wants fellowship with you all of the day.

You can take time alone with him and pray!


God loves us!  He brings abundant life


This can be yours, simply for the asking!

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!
