There Was a Time I Once Loved God

There Was a Time I Once L0ved God

I think about a time, when I would take time to pray.

I wanted to talk to God.  Just about every day.


I think about a time, when I had a Godly passion.

Loving others for Christ was a deep compassion.


I think about a time, when to church I went.

Spending time with God, was time well spent.


I think about a time when I would have many “dreams.”

Desiring the best of life, whatever it brings.


I think about a time when I reached my teenage years.

I was “losing” some of the things I once held dear.


My thoughts about God and his word began to “unfold.”

As my life was rejecting the things I was told.


My life began to “spiral down” with no way out.

I began to have doubts as to what

everything was about.


The relationship I once had with God began to devour.

I no longer felt his love in my life. Things went sour!


My life really was empty with no satisfaction within.

As I became involved with so much sin.


Then one night I cried out; “God...

Can you please help me?”

“I can’t do it without YOU!”

 “I need you desperately!”


As I began to cry…  I felt God’s presence all around.

I once was lost and hopeless. 

But NOW I was FOUND!


There were many things that God

helped me to let go!

He filled me with HIS love and brought

 peace to my soul!


Won’t you allow God to

be your life’s foundation?

You too can receive his love

and wondrous salvation!

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!
