What Happened to YOU???

What Happened to YOU???


You're Not The Same Person...


You're not the same person

I once knew.

"What in the world has

happened to you?"


You once loved the mention

of Jesus' name.

Now all you do is grumble and complain.


The joy of the Lord once made you glad.

But lately you seem

discouraged and sad.


Whatever happened to the fire

that once burned within?

What happened to the person

I once called "friend?"


Do you love Jesus like you once did?

Look at you now--and how you live!


You've allowed the pleasures of life

to get a hold on you.

What...for Christ sake...

Are you going to do?



out to him now and accept

his mercy and grace.

Kneel at his feet and seek his face.


Seek him now...while he still may be found.

Where sin and bondage are...

grace does abound



for Jesus a reality.

So you can be with him throughout eternity.


Only his love can make your life


For he loves you more than

you'll ever know!


and whole.
in your life... make a love

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!
