If The Foundations Are Destroyed...

If The Foundations Are Destroyed…


What shall the righteous do,

if the foundations are destroyed?

A life of godliness in our nation

 must be employed!


Only Jesus Christ is our solid rock

 and true foundation.

He must be the bedrock,

all across our nation!


His principles of truth most certainly

 need to be heard.

A passion to know and love him in us,

 must be stirred!


We must obey God with our body,

soul and mind.

If we do, he will bless and keep us

 till the end of time!


He wants to be the foundation

of the life that we build!

His way of righteousness,

 in our lives, must be filled!


His work on the cross brings

to us love and glory too!

It’s no secret how much our God

 loves me and YOU!

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!
