Jesus, I Can't Fool You!

Jesus...  I Can’t Fool You!


Lord...  For a long time,

I've been playing games.

Struggling with a guilt

 and a lot of pain!


My family and friends thought

 I was living so good.

But during all of this time

 they never understood.


Many of my friends,

 don't even know.

That for much of my life,

 I've been putting on a "show."


Many believers in church,

 that I meet all around.

Don't know of the struggles,

when things are getting me "down."


I'm sick of this way of living

 that I’ve had.

If YOU, Jesus, will help me,.

 I'll be so glad!


It's you Jesus...  I'll never

be able to fool.

Over everything in my life... 

You must reign and rule!


I'll be so happy for giving me

a new chance to begin.

By accepting YOUR grace

and being changed within!


Time for playing games is over!

Today is a new start!

Because of Jesus...  I have a new

life and a happy heart!

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!
