Are We Trying to Get Rid of God?

Are We Trying To Get Rid Of God?


Why is our country trying to remove

God from “everything?”

Do we think about the consequences this will bring?


Our early fathers looked to him for a “moral direction.”

But now we’re burdened down

with “political correction.”


When our country’s leaders signed the constitution…

They had no idea this paper would cause so much “confusion.”


As many judges have torn any “moral fabric” all apart…

It’s like they’ve placed a knife into this country’s heart!


Remove God from our buildings and our schools…

“Anything goes” by man’s interpretations and rules!


Take away the ten commandments from our land.

We are quickly drifting into a “spiritual quicksand.”


What are people looking for in this

 life they’ve been given?

No wonder so many are “mixed up”

in the way they’re livin’!


Once the Bible is removed as this country’s moral guide…

We’ve since gone down a very steep “slippery slide!”


I’m here to tell you that God is our only answer and hope!

He’s the answer to the many on drugs and dope!


He’s the answer to every problem that “ails you.”

He is God!  He is powerful and will never fail you!


He’s the one we must look to in a hopeless situation.

He’s the answer to every person in this great nation!

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!
