Give It All to Jesus
What kind of life have you
 been spending?
Is it one of "wasteful things"
 and "pretending?"
Things seem to be going "great."
 You're so proud.
Does it seem like you're
"walking on a cloud?"
You have a family. A big house
 and good health.
Not counting all of the "friends"
 and some wealth.
Have you thought about who
 made this possible?
It was God.  You may find this
 as "improbable."
His word says that everything is
 a gift from God on high
Anything else is just a lie!
It's not because of you that
you have all of this.
To be wealthy, happy and very bliss.
The next time you find yourself
 heading toward the door.
Think about what the true meaning
 of life is really for!
Lay your treasures in heaven and you'll find.
Godly contentment and a
real peace of mind.
The blessings of God...
Is what you need to acheive.
So the treasures of his love,
you'll begin to receive!

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!
