Are You Happy with the Life You Hav

Are You Happy With the Life You Have?


Are you truly happy with the life you have?

Or have you been discouraged and sad?


Have the things in life brought you contentment?

Or are you one who’s often filled with resentment?


The feelings you have, and the ambitions inside…

Is there some trouble that you’re trying to hide?


Everything you have…  God has given to you!

His promises are true!

And he’ll never fail you!


The happiness you may be seeking,

 you can find in him!

You can find peace,

 hope and satisfaction within!


Christ can bring a healing that you won’t find!

Won’t you give him a chance?

 While there’s still time?


What profits a man if he gains the world,

 or loses his soul?

Jesus loves you so much!

  More than you’ll ever know!


The opportunity is here, for you to take!

Won’t you give God a chance?  For heaven’s sake?

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!
