The Best Lifestyle You'll Ever Find
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

The Best "Lifestyle" You Will Ever Find!
I met someone who believed
 he was most "fortunate."
By choosing a lifestyle
 he called "alternate."
He tried to talk me into
choosing this lifestyle too.
I quoted him scripture.  He said;
"why not bend the rule?"
I could not sin against my
God, ever so blatant.
When it comes to HIS word. 
 I don't want to be "complacent."
This lifestyle I chose... Is the best
 life I could ever live.
It's my sins for God's grace. 
And his power to forgive!
If you want the most "ultimate
 lifetyle" you could ever find...
It comes from following Jesus.
And leaving everything behind!
The life you'll find in Christ... Will bring
 you a Godly abundance.
You'll receive his wonderful love
and a Godly substance!
There's no "closet" to come out of... 
 When loving him.
You'll leave an old way of living...
  And become born again!
Allow Jesus to overfill you with
his mercy beyond measure.
it's only in him...  You'll have
 an everlasting treasure!

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!
