God's Writing on the Wall!

God’s Writing on the Wall…



There was a city of Babylon whom

King Belshazzar ruled...

Till that one night, when he became “fooled.”


“Eat drink and be merry.”

Was the motto of the day!

But God had something else, he wanted to say!


The finger of God reached down

And wrote on the wall!

The prophet of God told the king,

his kingdom would fall!


The king panicked and later that night…

His kingdom fell…  Without a fight!


May this be a lesson and a warning to us today!

We need to listen to God!

And what he has to say!


Our country may “enjoy”  it’s wickedness and sin!

But one day soon!  It will

be coming to an end!


Won’t you allow the writing of God,

 to touch your heart’s door?

It was for me and you, that our savior died for!


God loves you more, than you’ll ever know!

He came to earth to redeem your soul!

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!
