Our Nation NEEDS God!

Our Nation NEEDS God!


I believe we’re living in, what

 many call “an x-rated society…”

The “pleasures of life” come in quite a variety!


Just about anything someone wants...

 Comes with “a push of the button.”

But when it comes to anything of God… 

 “He ain’t nothin.’!”


Where we will be tomorrow…

 No one seems to know.

As many seek “fulfillment”

for their”empty” soul…


What’s right or wrong… 

Has been “turned upside-down.”

While the tide of wickedness

 reaches every city and town…


While so many minds seem to be filled with

this world’s pollution…

People are looking for answers…  And a solution!


Our hope and faith certainly don’t

 lay in our possessions.

Nor in our dark secrets, and “secret obsessions…”


To those of you who perhaps, are waiting

 for a “government bailout…”

Let me tell you what the true meaning

 of living is all about…


Jesus is our security!  100% guaranteed

life and health insurance!

It’s only in him, we can have a

“blessed assurance!”


Only he has the power to rescue us

 from the horrible mess we’re in!

And it’s only in him… 

Where true freedom begins!


He gives a true definition to what

we call “The American dream…”

He alone is our foundation. 

The truth.  Our everything!


May the words; “In God we trust”

apply in everything we do!

Let these words be woven into the great

 “red white and blue…”


As the good news of Jesus Christ

 is preached loud and clear...

The “darkness” across our land

will soon disappear!

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!
