Is It God We Trust? Or Leave
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

 Is It God We Trust? Or Leave In the Dust?


As our courts remove God from this great nation.

We are left with a confused and lost generation!


As God is taken away from our public schools.

A huge tide of immorality is what “rules.”


The Bible is often mocked and discarded.

It was on it’s principles this country was started!


Just about anything of God seems to get scorned.

So many “rush” to worship many ungodly forms.


As God’s name is often tossed and thrown out.

We tend to forget what HE is all about!


Too often, his plans for living are tossed and abused.

No wonder, there’s many who are lost and confused!


As people forget God and worship the fallen creature.

They look to themselves and “glorify” their features.


Many ignore God, and get involved in deep addictions.

And with this, come disease,

heartache and afflictions!


As God looks and sees this nation “bleeding.”

It’s his righteousness, that we need to be seeking!


If we would humble ourselves, he would hear our prayer!

He loves all of us!  And he really does care!


Won’t you come to HIM, And invite him in?

Won’t you allow him to be your master and friend?


He brings strength and nourishment to the soul!

It’s only in him that we can be made whole!

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!
