My Way Or Godís Way?

As I often watch the daily news.

I hear about different stories

†and different views.

I can't help but to wonder

†when some complain.

Of their views not being "accepted."

†But "contained."

Many of the thoughts shared,

†bring to me a concern...

When it comes to God's word.†

Many have "their backs turned."

While often, they speak of

"tolerance" in their living...

Only their way... ††Is what they are giving.

If you disagree with them.†

You're called a "right winger."

While they march to the

†"same drum beat."† "The same singer."

I don't mean to spread a picture

of "doom and gloom."

But a "day of reckoning" is

coming so very soon!

†God's word...† Which many ignore...

Will be the "compass."† When God

comes knocking at you're door.

What will "your way" be when

†God calls your name?

Will you come to him.

†Or will you complain?

You'll be by yourself at

God's judgment day.

When your name is called.†

What will you say?

God's view is: "My love for

you will never end."

Allow his word to guide you...†

And to be your friend!

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!
