The Longer I Live...

The Longer I Live...


The longer I live...  The more I realize

 how short life really is.

The older I get...  The more I know

 there's a God who lives.


The longer I live...  The most important

 truth that I know...

Is a savior who's brought health

 and healing to my soul.


The longer I live...   I think about

what's important to me...

And the question remains:

"Where will I spend eternity?"


The longer I life...  Many I knew have

 since passed away...

So I want to live for God

 until my final day...


The longer I live...  I often think and

 begin to see...

I need much more of Jesus

 and a lot less of me!


The longer I live...  It becomes more

 evident and revealing...

The return of our Lord... 

And lhis glorious appearing!


The longer I live...  Is God's way of giving

 me another chance...

To allow him to be Lord..

Over every circumstance!


The longer I live...  Is another day

 to enjoy being forgiven...

Jesus is with me each day

that I've been livin'!

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!
