Are You Successful?

Are You Successful?

 

 

Are you one who feels like you’ve

been blessed?

With what many would consider

as success??

 

You may have the best of 

many things…

And have much of what

life brings…

 

But, are you the kind of person

God wants you to be?

Have you thought

about your eternity?

 

Once you leave this life…

You can’t take anything with you!

It’s no secret how much

God really loves you!

 

Rather than seeking that

which seems appealing.

God’s love and grace,

You need to be receiving!

 

It comes from falling in love with

Jesus and making him Lord.

Only in Christ is where your

treasures should be stored.

 

Allow his word and spirit to daily lead.

He alone can bring the things in life

you really need!

 

Listen to his word and his voice!

Above everything else in life...

He must be your first choice!

 

Only then will your life be

the way God intended.

His life for your life has

already been committed!

 

Enter into his holiness.

 his peace and rest!

What he gives you…

is always the best!!

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!
