Have We Forgotten God?

Have we forgotten God today, regardless of what polls do say?
God is acknowledged by most, across this land, coast to coast,
But, is His Truth truly believed, or are many souls just deceived?
If God, by the country is lifted up, why are our ways so corrupt?

Yes, ďOh my GodĒ we often hear, but, do you sense a holy fear?
In their voice as they proclaim, our Sovereign Godís Holy Name?
And what yet, is even worse, His Name is used more, as a curse,
As many say they believe in Him, while being led by cords of sin.

Truly the question one must raise, while living in these later days,
Regarding God, just if or when, Heís even in the thoughts of men,
And friend that is only just a start, for is He moving in their heart?
Is He accepted with a devout nod, or do they even think of God?

If no place for God is found, these men will be on shaky ground,
Only girded by the shifting sand, in hard trials they will not stand;
Such is the same for any nation, that falls from Godís Revelation,
Ignoring The Word, many cherish, many within our land will perish.

Saying they believe in The Lord, but Godís Holy Laws go ignored,
While we live in these darker days, with many seeking other ways,
If youíre concerned at all my friend, let us not continue to pretend,
Again, all across this land we trod, have men truly forgotten God?

(Copyright ©06/2010 Bob Gotti)

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What A Blessed Hope, Bob Gotti

I think your poem carries so much truth.
We in this country need to turn back to God,
before we wake up to late and all is gone before our eyes. Liked your poem.

I read your poem and I don't remember exactly, but doesn't the Bible mention somewhere about the rise and fall of a nation?  Maybe its our nation... I mean I could be wrong, but maybe I'm right.  I don't want to post everything I'm thinking, but if you'd like feel free to send me an email... God bless.

Does she pray, or am I prey?
