Jesus Must Be Our Foundation

Jesus Must Be Our Foundation!



All across this great nation…

It seems we lack a solid foundation!


As God is tossed out of government

and schools.

It seems like just about

anything rules!


Even a symbol of a cross

seems to offend.

“How dare we call God a friend?”


Where are the Godly principles

 this nation needs?

As the heart of this nation continually bleeds.


Not many seem to care anymore.

As more ungodliness comes ashore!


No wonder many people don't

know what to believe.

A lifestyle of lying, drugs and

 sex is what they achieve.


In many lives, there’s

no "moral boundary."

Many carrying a lot of "dirty laundry."


To those of you who want

satisfaction and victory too...

There is a "moral compass"

that's freely offered to you!


This "moral compass," is God's word!.

it’s needed in this nation!

It  speaks of God’s love

 and his gift of salvation!


If you find life is filled with emptiness,

with no true meaning.

It's in the direction of Jesus

that you need to be leaning!


You don't have to live in

despair and defeat!

Jesus' grace and love will

make you complete!

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!
