May We Speak the Goodness of God!

May We Speak the Goodness of God!


I heard a Christian speak...  Oh, the kinds of words he was using!

Perhaps, to him, it was “entertaining and amusing.”


I couldn’t believe the profanity and cursing that came out!

Is this what the purpose of our life is all about?


The bible says; “we speak out of the abundance of our heart.”

We need to think of what we say! Before we start!


God knows that many of us stumble along the way.

We have said things that later, we knew, we shouldn’t say!


If we’re going to continually speak ungodly things.

We need to think about what, to our life,

this really brings!


Think about the influence, we have on our kids!

They listen to what we speak!   And how we live!


May the Holy Spirit bring power and conviction!

And help us to say that which brings edification!


May the word of God enrich our body and soul!

May it help us speak that which is good,

honorable and whole!


May we seek to daily bring honor to Jesus! In what we do!

May this be a commitment both for me and you!


Jesus is worthy of our lips, bringing him glory and praise!

Let’s seek to bless him! During our remaining days!


Please Jesus, anoint our tongues

with your cleansing fire!

May we speak the things of God,

as our passion and desire!

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!
