I Choose The Narrow Road To Heaven!


Here I am, and another day has passed me by.

It’s another day closer till the day I die.


This life as I know it, will one day disappear.

This is a truth that is evident and very velar.


In the end, will I my life be gaining or losing?

Which road to eternal life will I be choosing?


God has already made salvation available to all.

Through prayer, I think I’ll give him “a call.”


Through Christ, a narrow road to heaven is made.

Through his shed blood, the price has been paid.


In the end, will eternity in heaven be what I lose?

I hope that it’s the right choice that I choose.


Broad is the road that leads to destruction’s fate.

Jesus is the only road to heaven’s gate!


After my life ends, I won’t be disappointed.

If I spend my eternity with Jesus, God’s anointed!


The narrow road is the one that I will make!

I want to do it now!  For heaven’s sake!

The Narrow Way

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 [a]Because narrow is the gate and [b]difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

Matthew 7:13-14 New King James Version (NKJV)

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!
