Are Things in LIfe 'Out of Place'

Are Things in Your LIfe "Out of Place?"


I visited a garage sale...  And had a

 surprised look on my face.

I noticed that some things

 were "out of place."


To my right was a shelf filled with books. 

 And Christian ones too.

To my left... Was a sign that read;

 "I have adult movies for you."


I wondered and thought with

 some kind of amazement.

"Does this person read these books

And watch this "entertainment?"


  This is common

 in many Christian homes.

Often...  People cross God's

"boundaries" and "safety zones."


Anyone can go to church...

.  Pray, sing  and "shed a tear."

Not realizing that sins's temptation

 is drawing ever so near.


Do you seek God's holiness and

the power of Jesus' name?

But each night.  Before bedtime. 

 Things aren't quite the same?


Have you opened up your heart and mind... 

 And live life unfulfilled?

Is this the way you ought to live? 

Is this what God has willed?


He desires to live inside of you. 

And help you to discover.

With any stronghold in life. 

 He'll help you to recover!


Are things in life "out of place?" 

 And needs to be put back together?

Allow God's word to guide your life.

  HIs promises are forever!


Everything will be where it should be...

 With Jesus in control!

Only HE can defeat the enemy,

 that seeks to destroy your soul!

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!
