At Any Moment, I Could Leave this E
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

At Any Moment…  I Could Leave This Earth!


At any moment, I could leave my earthly home!

When this happens, I won’t be alone!


At any moment, my life could come to an end.

When I leave, I won’t be taking any friends!


At any moment, eternity could come for me.

Then I’ll leave this world beneath me!


At the moment, when my life shall disappear.

I’ll be with my Lord.  This is so clear!


At this moment, when I meet my savior above.

I’ll have a new body, as a gift of his love.


After the moment, when I depart

 into the life eternal.

God will find my name in the

 “book of life’s journal.”


I remember the moment when I invited Jesus in.

And asked him to forgive

my every sin.


I remember the moment I received his salvation.

In Christ…  I was a brand new creation!


This moment with Jesus can be yours as well!

The choice is clear.  It’s heaven or hell!


Won’t you take a moment with him?  You can know!

Where in eternity God will place your soul.


This moment can be yours.  Jesus is talking!

He stands at your hearts door,

 patiently knocking!

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!
