I Need to Obey Jesus!

I Need to Obey Jesus!


If I don’t obey Jesus, how can I expect him to help me?

Especially when I have many temptations around me!


If I don’t read his word, and don’t apply it’s meaning…

There will be many lies in life, that I’ll start believing!


If I don’t seek HIS blood’s cleansing of my soul…

There’ll be many blessings that I’ll never know!


If I don’t stop living like there’s no tomorrow…

I’ll continue to struggle with guilt and sorrow.


I need to change!  I’m going to start today!

I want to serve Jesus!  Trust him and obey!


Please forgive me Jesus, for my sinful ways…

I come before you and give honor and praise!


Please change me and my life throughout.

I need to be what a child of God is about!


Please help me!  I can’t make it on my own!

I ask for your healing among

 my family and home!


Help me to be the person you want me to be!

May these chains of sin be gone! 

I need to be free!


Thank you dear lord for listening to my prayer…

Without you, I’m filled with hopelessness and despair!


I give you my whole life!  My savior and king!

Because of you…  I have everything!

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!
