I Look to Jesus for My Strength!

I Look to Jesus for My Strength!


There’s been things that I’m ashamed of!

I’ve had more problems than I can speak of!


I’ve had my ups and downs and valleys to cross.

Many things I’ve gained

 and many I’ve lost!


At times, I’ve lost my focus and my desire.

As I grow weary and become very tired.


At the point where I’ve lost sense of direction…

I’m trying to give Jesus my whole attention!


I’ve come full circle when life’s crashing down.

He’s a true friend, when

 there’s none to be found.


His name is Jesus!  Need I say anything less?

I’ve found that trusting him is always the best!


He gives me the strength, when it’s needed!

With his love and hope,

my life is completed!


He’s the one I look to!  There is no other!

He’s a friend who sticks

closer than a brother!


Won’t you come and give him a chance?

He’ll change your life and circumstance!


He’s make you a new person

from the inside out!

Giving you an abundant life

 is what he’s about!


Please come Lord Jesus! 

We need you this hour!

We need to be changed by your

 awesome power!

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!
