How Can Someone...

How Can Someone…


How can someone love God

 and not love the “unlovable?”

How can someone follow God

 and not reach the “unreachable?”


How can someone go to church,

 and sit in a pew.

How can this person not tell another

 “Jesus loves you!”


How can the body of Christ

 simply “sit around ?”

While this world of ours is being

 “turned upside-down?”


How can those who’ve accepted

God’s gift of grace…

When trouble comes our way,

 “turn the other face?”


How could Jesus die for

 the sins of so many?

When sacrificing for HIM.. 

Are there any???


How can God put up with

 wickedness for so long?

In his arms of mercy...

Is where we all belong!


How can someone let another day

 simply pass by…

Without giving God control… 

We’ll  spiritually die…


Why not give everything to Jesus?

Giving him your best?

Take one step toward him.

 He will do the rest!


Why not trust him NOW?

 with no  postponement...

He can change you! 

This very moment!

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!
