Sitting at the Feet of Jesus...

Sitting At the Feet of Jesus


Sitting at the feet of Jesus...

Have you missed out?

On what being child of God is all about!

Some think true joy comes from

laughter or a “funny feeling.”

Getting involved with things not of God,

but are appealing.


Twisting the true joy of God,

with the empty joy of man.

Forgetting what God’s word says—

failing to understand.

LISTEN! Godly joy is not based on

an “overnight experience.”

Nor based on what may have a

Godly appearance.”


It comes from falling in love with

Jesus and his precious word too.

Simply enjoying Jesus and his life

that he gave for you!


Everything you have…

From Jesus it came.

Be careful not to forget

 the joy in his precious name…

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!
