A Moral Foundation...

A Moral Foundation...

Very seldom do I hear
any complaints.
Regarding the lacking
of moral restraints.

It seems like many are under
some kind of a "spell."
What's right or wrong?
Many can't even tell!

Where are the moral leaders
this nation needs?
As the heart of this nation continually bleeds.

Many chuches provide
very little discretion.
Pretending to be "Godly" ... yet no moral direction.

No wonder many people don't
know what to believe.
A lifestyle of lying, drugs and
sex is what they achieve.

In their lives, they have
no "moral boundary."
Many carrying a load of "dirty laundry."

To those of you who want
satisfaction and victory too...
There is a "moral compass"
that's freely offered to you!

This "moral compass,"
is God's word...a solid foundation!
Which speaks of HIS love
and his gift of salvation!

If your life is filled with hurt,
and has no true meaning.
It's in the direction of Jesus
you need to be leaning!

You don't have to live in
despair and defeat.
Jesus' grace and love will
make your life complete!

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!
