Do I Have True Happiness?

Do I Have True Happiness?

 

With everything I've done and all that I’ve got.

What kind of  happiness has it brought?

 

With everything I can reach out and obtain.

Has it given me joy, or given to me shame?

 

With everything that this world can give to me.

What kind of life “lies beneath me?”

 

With everything I own.  My possessions and wealth.

Do I have contentment and “spiritual” wealth?

 

This one thing that I know

 and wish to express.

I’m not so sure I’m what you would call “blessed.”

 

This one thing I know to be very certain.

Tomorrow could be life’s “final curtain.”

 

There’s one thing that’s been on my mind.

Have I ever given God just some of “my” time?

 

There’s one thing I’m going to do, and do it now.

I’m going to come to the Lord and humbly bow.

 

This is something that I really need to do...

Give it all to God!  And tell him; “I LOVE YOU!”

 

This is something I should have done already.

When Christ comes again…  I want to be ready!

 

The joy and happiness is true and very real!

The presence of God..,  I can already feel!

 

What God has given to me, no one can take away!

For he comforts me and is with me every day!

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!
