Christ Extended a Heavenly Invitati

Christ Extended A Heavenly Invitation…


Christ extended an invitation to receive him.

I thought about it.  But I didn’t believe him.


How could someone like him, truly love me?

I’ve sinned so many times.  I’m sure he knows me.


Christ spoke to my heart words so true…

And said; “I’ll always be faithful to you!”


His voice brought comfort to my ears…

 I felt I had spent many wasted years.


I arose from the bed that very moment.

I accepted HIM!  And his blood’s atonement!


I accepted his invitation to accept him!

For all that he’s done...  I’ll never forget him!


I’m so thankful for the opportunity given!

Now, I’m cleansed and totally forgiven!


He brought peace and healing to my mind!

And has been there for me...  Every time!


Glory be to Jesus!  Almighty God is he!

He has come, that I may have life abundantly!


Thank you Jesus!  For the invitation you extended!

Your love and mercy

are to be commended!


You came and changed me from the inside out!

You ‘re so wonderful!  And what life is about!

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!
