Are We Leaving God Out?

Are We Leaving God Out???


We often hear this topic across our nation.

Another person crying; “discrimination.”


In our many attempts to not discriminate.

It seems like it’s God that we seek to eliminate.


It seems like we’ve come up with our own “rules.”

And somehow have turned into a bunch of “fools.”


We accept many perversions of various kinds…

But God himself?  We seem to close our minds!


In many of our lives,  we’ve “kicked “ him out.

And refuse what he really is about!


The words, “In God we trust...”  Our money bears it!

Anything of God?  We’re afraid to share it!


It seems like the courts almost say he doesn’t exist!

And have brought much confusion into our midst!


As many say it’s “offensive” to display a cross…

Many godly values have already been lost!


It’s time to wake up America!  And begin to see!

The kind of country we’re beginning to be!


A country that’s foundation is getting off course.

Being driven by a wicked and ungodly force!


Out only hope is in God!  And him alone!

We must invite him back into our homes!


To God and his word we must hold secure and fast!

He is our only hope that our country will last!

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!
