We Need To Know God's Word!


It's about time that we got

 off of our "perch."

Let’s open up God's word

and begin to search.


We just can't go to church

 and sit in a pew.

Not knowing testaments. 

 old and new.


Read from Genesis

 through Revelation.

You can start today... 

Why not accept this invitation?


King David hid the word inside... 

That he may not sin.

Isn't it about time we start

 reading his word...  again?


The Bible.  God's truth. 

You may wonder and doubt.

You find it's 100 percent true...

 All throughout!


It's more than history. 

Or just some "old story."

It's a message from God.

 Whom is majestic and holy!


It was inspired by God

and written by men.

But it's just as if God was

 holding the pen.


The message is the same now. 

As it was long ago.

It holds truth.  Hope

And salvation for your soul.


Don't just try to live according

 to how others do.

Read the Bible yourself. 

See how it'll change 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!
