Heaven's Narrow Road...

Heaven’s Narrow Road…


The road to heaven is a narrow one to follow.

We don’t know what we’ll face tomorrow.


The road to heaven has already been paid!

On Calvary, the way through Jesus,

 was made!


Many attempt to travel with

“good intentions.”

But often try to make it with

their own “inventions.”


They often try to “widen” the road

to “suit their sin.”

This is where the real troubles happen again.


They often take a “detour” to their

own ambition.

They seek their “own kind” of love

 and salvation.


Repentance and holiness seem

 to be a burden.

“I can make it on my own.” 

They’re certain!


“Narrow is the way and few

there be that find it.”

This is a powerful truth God’s word

reminds it!


If the road to heaven seems

 to narrow for you…

What is it in life that you really

want to do?


The road to heaven is one

 that’s freely given!

I pray that it’ll be a part of the

way you’re livin’!

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!
