I Took the Time for God
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

I Took the Time for God!

I took the time to tell God

that I love him!

I wanted to do this!

I wanted to tell him!

I took the time to kneel down

and pray…

There were many things

that I wanted to say!


I took the time to ask God

to help me!

He’s been my friend!

And has never failed me!


I took the time to read

my Bible too!

I needed direction in what

I should do!


God took the time to

Reach down and touch me!

He did this, because

he really loves me!

God took the time to

listen to my prayer!

He told me that he

is always there!


God took time for me, when

my life needed it!

All that I need… He’s already

completed it!

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!
