Am I Concerned for the Lost?

Am I Concerned for the Lost?



For the lost souls…

Am I concerned like I should be?

While many slip into eternity!


With each day that passes me by…

There’s another lost soul

That will die!


I’m too busy to give

  my time to anyone.

I’ll never be able to reach everyone!


I’ve never led a person in

 the sinner’s prayer.

“Why should I waste my time?”

 “Why should I care?”


I know that Jesus wants

me to reach the lost...

But I’ve never thought about

what this would cost!


I know that Jesus

Is the atonement for sin!

And invites all, to be born again!


May I have a desire

 to reach the lost souls!

If one day, I plan to make

 heaven my goal!


With God’s help,

I pray there will be…

People in heaven, because of

God loving through me!

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!
