I Think About How this Country Has Changed!


Over the years, I think about how this country has changed!

It’s like “right vs. wrong” has been “rearranged.”


We’re told that a separation from man and God exists.

Yet the handiwork of God is in our very midst!


Rather than seeking to obey God’s word and rules.

Our courts have turned this country into “fools.”


The whole idea of marriage is often very confusing.

Many don’t think about the wrong path they’re choosing!


Government often passes laws that provide a “moral instability.”

We’ve often lost our respect for a Godly type of morality.


As people’s lives get filled with lusts of various kinds.

Many are wandering around with very confused minds!


“One nation under God” is too often under attack.

As this country is quickly “getting off track!”


If “change” is what you want, or what you’re looking for.

Think about the purpose of life you’re meant for!


The direction you need to travel,

 is to the Lord in prayer.

Wherever you are... 

He will meet you there!


Christ alone removes any “God or state” separation.

By his shed blood and his gift of salvation!


There’s no Supreme Court near heaven’s gates!

There’s a God who loves who, and anxiously waits!


He longs for you to receive his life eternal.

So he can put your name in heaven’s journal!


Won’t you allow his love to cleanse you within?

And experience the atonement for every sin!


May the Lord bring to us all a healing and restoration!

He is the only true hope for our 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!
