Reading God's Word...

Reading God's Word.
It's about time that we got
 off of our "perch."
and open up God's word
and begin to search.
We just can't go to church
 and sit in a pew.
Neglecting both of the testaments. 
The old and new.
Read from Genesis
 through Revelation
You can start today... 
Why not accept this invitation?
King David hid the word inside... 
That he may not sin.
Isn't it about time we start
 reading his word...  again?
The Bible.  God's truth. 
You may wonder and doubt.
You find it's 100 percent true...
 All throughout!
It's more than history. 
Or just some "old story."
It's a message from God.
 Whom is majestic and holy!
It was inspired by God
and written by men.
But it's just as if God was
 holding the pen.
The message is the same now. 
As it was long ago.
It holds truth.  Hope. 
And salvation for your soul.
Don't just try to live according
 to how others do.
Read the Bible yourself. 
See how it'll change YOU!

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!
