If Not for God... Where Would I
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

If Not for God…   Where Would I Be?


If not for God…  Where would I be?

I’d be as lost as a ship

wandering the sea.


If not for God…  And his amazing grace…

My life right now… 

Would be in a dangerous place!


If not for God…  I’d feel emptiness

 all around.

It would be as if everything

“came crashing down.”


If not for God  Being with me each day…

I’d be lost.  And stumbling

to “find my way.”


If not for God…  Whose son bled and died…

Only sin and darkness in my life

would be applied.


If not for God  Who took away my sin.

I’d never know the joy

 of being born again!


If not for God…  I ‘d be alone.

And wouldn’t have his love in my home!


May this same God help you

to clearly see…

How much he loves you. 

How much he loves me!


Won’t you give God a place

in your heart?

So his power can give you



God’s love, joy and mercy

 will astound you!

It wasn’t me... 

But HIM that found you!

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!
