Nothing in My Life Has Worked! I N

Nothing In My Life Has Worked!  I Need Jesus Now!



 



Many times, I feel trouble and trials at every side.



I can feel the pressure of “an evil tide.”



 



I’ve often lost battles and have been defeated.



I feel so empty!  Like my life hasn’t been completed.



 



There’s been many things in life, that I’ve tried.



But nothing has really worked, or satisfied!



 



My family doesn’t know the person I’ve come to be.



I feel like a broken ship, that’s lost out at sea!



 



I can’t keep wearing this “masquerade” much longer.



As I continue to just stumble along and wander.



 



I remember hearing about Jesus as a young boy.



I heard that he can bring love and unspeakable joy!



 



Jesus, I beg for your mercy and grace to cleanse me.



For all of my faults and failures, please forgive me!



 



I ask that you’d reach down and restore within me.



Everything that the emptiness has taken from me!



 



I don’t know the “right” words,



 but I really need you!



I come know, and kneel on my knees before you!



 



I thank you my Lord, for listening to my prayers.



I believe that you are someone who truly cares!



 



I now feel Jesus’ sweet love touching my soul!



In his name, I’ve been made



 complete and WHOLE!

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!
