The Story of Samson

The Story of Samson...

Samson... A judge of Isreal
was known to be strong.
Because of his vow to God.
His hair was to grow long.

With the jawbone of an ass...
Thousands of Philistines were killed.
To get the secret of his strength,
is what they had willed.

They sent Delilah to tempt him
with her charm and beauty.
Samson revealed his secret to her.
Growing exhausted and weary.

Breaking the promise of God...
He lost his strength and eyesight.
Till the day he rested his hand on
the Philistine' temple to tight.

He asked God to give him
strength once again...
Then pushed the pillars.
Killing thousands with him.

For all of his accomplishments
he had made...
He broke his promise to God...
When his secret he gave.

Make sure your commitment
to God is true and real...
So you don't end up,
like Samson of Isreal!

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!
