The Story of Samson...

The Story Of Samson...

Samson...  A judge of Isreal

was known to be strong.

Because of his vow to God. 

His hair was to grow long.


With the jawbone of an ass...

Thousands of Philistines were killed.

To get the secret of his strength,

is what they had willed.


They sent Delilah to tempt him

with her charm and beauty.

Samson revealed his secret to her. 

Growing exhausted & weary.


Breaking the promise of God...

He lost his strength and eyesight.

Till the day he rested his hand on

 the Philistine' temple to tight.


He asked God to give him

 strength once again.

Then pushed the pillars. 

Killing thousands with him.


For all of his accomplishments

he had made.

He broke his promise to God...

 But God forgave!


Make sure your commitment

to God is true!

 So you don't end up

like Samson too!

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!
