Are You Living For Jesus?

Are You Living For Jesus?

 

Another day will soon be ending.

What kind of life

 have you been spending?

 

Does it just seem like

Life is on a cloud?

"Everything's going good."

 You're very proud!

 

You have a house, cars

 and much wealth.

Not counting all of your friends,

 and good health.

 

Have you thought about

who made all this possible?

Jesus!  You may find this

 to be "improbable."

 

The Bible says that every good

gift is from God  on high.

His word is true!  Don't listen to a lie!

 

It's surely not just because of you

 that you have all of this.

To go along in life, rather

happy and bliss.

 

The next time you're heading

 for front door.

Think about the meaning of life. 

And what you're here for!

 

Lay your treasures up in heaven

 and you shall find…

Godly contentment, joy.

 and peace of mind.

 

The blessings of God, 

in you, he wants to pour.

Give what you have to him... 

And then you'll have MORE!

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!
