Christ Chose Me!

Christ Chose Me!

It was I that my savior chose...

He’s supplied all my needs
my food and clothes.

He was there when I was
laid off from work.
Satan was saying,
“you’re no good—just a jerk.”

I admit; “my accomplishments—
I do not boast.”
But I do exalt the Father,
the Son and Holy Ghost.

If not for God’s love,
I’d be dead, this I know.
This is the reason why
I love him so!

He’s done so much for me—
it’s hard to express.
The privilege of being God’s son—
I am so blessed!

I was a clay jar all broken apart,
But the potter put me together
from his heart
.

The glue he used was his
love for me,
That’s why I’m happy
and set free!

This I know and hope
you’ll understand,
He’ll do the same for you—
just reach out your hand!

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!
