Jesus Filled Me with His Love!

Jesus Filled Me With His Love!


There were things in life, I wanted to obtain.

I didn’t receive them and began to complain.


I felt like there were things I missed out on.

Things in life that I thought I could depend on.


As I begin to think about what’s in the past…

Nothing brought a joy what would last.


I soon discovered that whatever I tried.

Never really fulfilled me or satisfied.


Then I heard a voice calling from above.

I felt a presence, a peace and sweet love.


I knew it was from God…  And him alone!

It filled my heart and blessed my home.


The God I heard from, I knew I needed…

This was the reason I wasn’t completed!


Jesus was the “missing ingredient” I found out.

He came and changed my life throughout!


With him as my lord, nothing

 else really matters!

Everything now seems like

 emptiness and “chatter.”


Jesus is what I need!  And so much more!

It is his presence that I worship and adore!


Please come Lord Jesus, and fill me within!

How much I need you!  Again and again!

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!
