The Narrow Road...

The Narrow Road


Are you looking for joy and satisfaction

 that you “haven’t got?”

The peace and joy which you seek… 

Simply can’t be bought…


Do you seek some kind of fulfillment

 in your daily activities?

Meanwhile, pushing the envelope,

” with your liberties?


There’s a road of “good intentions.”

 It’s wide and easy to find.

But there’s a narrow road…

Which I have in mind…


This narrow road, to many,

may seem strange indeed…

It’s only on this road, where you’ll find

 an answer to your need


This road eventually leads to a life

that’s everlasting.

This brings me to a question,

 which I’m asking…


Are you ready to take the road that

 leads to heaven’s gate?

Will this be your choice?  Before it’s too late?


Jesus stands at your heart’s door

and he’s knocking..

The choice is yours  Which road you’ll

 do your walking…


Please take the narrow road…

 It can be difficult to travel…

You should do this...  Before this world

begins to “unravel.”


Jesus.  The prince of Peace...  Rules the earth

 and heavens above…

Won’t you enter his haven of rest,

 and abundance of love?


He is here waiting for you.  So loving,

 patient and kind…

Only in him… Will you find satisfaction and

joy every single time!

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!
