Do You LIsten to What God Has to Sa

Do You Listen to What God Has to Say?


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.

Anything of God, many

want to "contain."


Many of people’s thoughts

 bring a concern...

When it comes to God's word. 

They have "their backs turned."


While often, they speak of

"tolerance" in their living...

Only what they want to believe...

Is what they are giving.


If you disagree with them. 

You're called a "right winger."

While they march to the

 "same drum beat and singer."


This isn’t a picture

of "doom and gloom."

But a "day of reckoning" is

coming so very soon!


 God's word...  Will you choose to ignore?

  When he comes knocking at your heart's door?


What will you believe,

 when God calls your name?

Will you come to him?

 Or simply complain?


You'll be by yourself at

God's judgment day.

When your name is called. 

What will you say?


God's says: "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!
