The Meaning of Success...



As a Christian... What is your

definition of true success?

How do you really know if your

life has been blessed?


Is it based on the words your

pastor may have spoken?

Has your life been humbled... and your heart broken?


Have you measured up to the way

God really wants you to be?

Are you in search of HIS righteousness

with a desire to be holy?


it's more than just

doing a "church routine."

Or coming to church every week,

and doing the "Sunday thing."


True Godly success is not based

on a church building.

Nor getting involved on things

that are rather "appealing."


It comes from falling in love with and making him Lord.

It's only in Christ where your

treasures should be stored.


Allow his holy word and spirit to daily lead.

He alone

you so desparately need.


Listen to his word and harken unto his voice.

Above everything else in life...

He must be your first choice


Only then will your life be blessed

the way God intended.

His life for your life has

already been committed.


Enter into his holiiness.

HIS peace and rest.

For what he gives you will

always be the best!

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!
