May We Love God as Job Did!

May We Love God As Job Did…


Job was a man of God who was very wise.

He made a covenant before God with his eyes.


He vowed not to look at things which would cause him to sin.

This is where he received victory

 and peace within!


He lived a blameless life before God almighty.

He served God well beyond the age of ninety!


Much of what he loved or owned was taken away.

He refused to curse or blame God

in whatever he’d say!


He had his “friends.”  He had his own “crowd.”

“Curse and blame God!”  They shouted out loud!


Not once did he attempt to bring God shame.

But instead worshipped and blessed HIS name!


God blessed and gave him more than he had before!

The blessings of God reached beyond his door!


An incredible testimony of faith he was able to share!

A great man of God, he was to people everywhere!


Do you have a testimony to share like Job did?

Have you surrendered all to Christ in how you live?


During the many adversities in life that abound…

May God’s peace and love in our hearts be found!


May God be pleased with the way we’ve been living...

In our hearts, may we have

his love and thanksgiving!


May we have a heart of holiness as Job did so long ago…

Allowing God to bring peace

 and fulfillment to our soul!


May our hearts desire to seek after God’s holy ways…

In everything we do, may we bring

 him honor and praise!

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!
