GOD IS NOT DEAD

One nation under God,” is what our founders said,

But something happened on the way. They now say God is dead.

I know our God lives on. He stands at heaven’s gate.

And He will bring our nation back from greed, and lies and hate.

Under our pow’r alone, we cannot run the race.

He sent His dear Son, Jesus, to die and take our place.

Because He is our God, He’ll never let us stray.

He holds our hands and leads us into His holy way.

In this new day and age, we strive to do what’s right,

We try not to offend; we try with all our might,

But when the road is paved with misery and fears,

Our hearts must stay with Jesus, to overcome the tears.

God is not dead at all. He lives in you and me,

If we remain in Him our conscience will be free,

So join your hand with Jesus throughout this earthly life,

He’ll give you strength and hope. He’ll take away your strife.

When we turn back to God, His arms are open wide.

He doesn’t look at our mistakes, instead He looks inside.

So let’s get back to basics and remember who we are.

Though life may change, our God remains, He’s carried us this far.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    What you say may be true, but it’s getting a Godless nation, (for the most part), to repent and return to God. That’s the difficult part of this equation.

    Good post. Steve

      So many of God’s prophets were given the task of calling nations to repent and return to the Lord. Many of them fought this mission and refused to try because they thought they couldn’t do it. We need to be reminded that all things are possible when God is running the show. He will win in the end. Thanks for your comment.
