What Is It in Life That You're

What Is It In Life That You’re Looking For?


What is it in life that you’re looking for?

Is it wealth or fame?  Do you want more?


I think about the many who’ve gone before us.

Do you think that any of them loves us?


No!  In spite of man’s attempts to create wealth.

This cannot buy a cure for 100% good health!


In man’s pursuit for more riches and gold…

It cannot buy love or happiness, as I’ve been told!


In man’s attempts to build a “better machine.”

Nothing or no one, can make us 100% clean!


In man’s ambitions and many inventions…

We’ve many roads leading into different directions!


Governments come and nations will fall!

What will our life mean to us, after all?


If there’s something in life that you hope will last…

There’s hope for you now!

You just need to ask!


Only Jesus can bring to your life

a true purpose and meaning!

His mercy and grace… 

You can be receiving!


With Jesus, a true love has already been decided!

Everything you’ll ever need…  He’s provided!


Won’t you come to him now?  Please don’t wait!

Please do it now!  

 Before it’s too late!

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!
