The Wickedness That Abounds!

The Wickedness That Abounds!


Throughout this world, wickedness abounds!

Just about everywhere, it can be found!


God’s word says sin leaves a very dark stain.

We have no one else, but ourselves, to blame!


The heart of man is desperately wicked inside!

It causes many to be filled with much pride!


We often hear of tragedy shown on the t.v.

You may think, “this will never happen to me!”


A mind without God, gives the devil “fertile soil.”

It’s like water in a teapot that’s ready to BOIL!


Without God’s word, as our guide and rule…

We’re empty inside, and are easily fooled!


The goodness of God can calm the troubled heart!

On your knees in prayer,

 is a good place to start!


The grace of Jesus is powerful! And can instantly change!

With Jesus, your life can be restored,

 and “ re-arranged!”


All of the government spending cannot match HIS power!

With Christ…  You can overcome anything!

 This very hour!


Please Jesus, come and remove our burdens amongst us!

We need you here today!  And to always be with us!


YOU ARE what we need all across this great nation!

By the power of your blood

 and wondrous salvation!

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!
