I Remember Going to Church...

I Remember Going To Church…


I remember going to a church

not too many years ago…

When the pastor preached...

It brought conviction to my soul!


I remember that after the service…

Many cried out and prayed…

For many of them…  It didn’t matter

 how long they stayed…


I still remember some of the messages

 the pastor was preaching…

Into many of our hearts,

the word of God was reaching.


I remember all of these things

and so much more!

But today…  This wouldn’t be

welcomed in my church’s door!


You see…  Much of what was

preached as right or wrong…

In many Christian circles… 

It doesn’t belong!


What once was used by God to be

 Godly and instrumental…

Is now called “hateful,”

and “judgemental…”


Wait a minute!  Doesn’t this same

God still require a holy life?

This same God still calls marriage… 

One husband and one wife…


In this crazy world, where so many

things are “upside down.”

Are there any seeking God’s holiness?

 Can any be found?


Make no mistake...  God’s judgement

 is coming very soon.!

Have you allowed Christ to be

the lord in “every room?”


God is still the same God… 

surely loves YOU!

Why not invite him in and allow

him to be your Lord too!

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!
