God's Word Applies to Everyone!

God’s Word Applies To Us All!

A loved one  gave me a Bible

and asked me to read it.

But when I share scripture with him,

 he says, "I don't need it."


Apparently, he feels that some

scripture does not apply.

It's almost like he twists the truth

 with a lie.


Why won't he accept scripture? 

I don't understand it.

I don't see how a Christian can

 "dance all around it?"


God's truth has a meaning that

should ring loud and clear.

Everything in God’s word is 100% truth

and very secure.


I don't want to select scripture

 at my own choosing.

Because, in the end, I'll be the

one who is losing!

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!
