Playing Games With God?


Lord…  For too long, I’ve been

 “playing games…”

Struggling with a load of

 guilt and  pain!


May family and friends all thought

 I was living “pretty good.”

  Deep down inside of me…

 They never understood!


Those who were close to me

didn’t seem to know…

All I was doing was just “putting on a show!”


Those I went to church with in our town…

Didn’t seem to know what was

 “pulling me down.”


Lord…  I’m sick and tired of the

 kind of life I’ve had!

If you can change my life… 

I’ll be forever glad!


I may “impress” others.  But it’s God

 I’ll never fool!

 Jesus…  I invite you to

 come into my heart and rule!


Thank you Jesus for bringing

 Happiness to my life again!

It’s only in YOU that a

BRAND NEW life begins!

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!
