Jesus Removed What Was Holding Me

Jesus Removed What Was Holding Me Down!


The pleasure of life seemed to have a hold on me.

Whatever it was didn’t want to “let go of me!”


This thing was being pulled further and further down.

I could soon feel an “overwhelming”

 darkness around.


I cried for help, but there was no one to answer me.

I was hope that someone would reach out and help me.


I remembered talking to Jesus in a Sunday school prayer.

Somehow, I knew that he would listen and care.


I cried out to him in a moment of desperation.

I opened up my heart and gave

 HIM an invitation.


This moment what the best thing I’d ever do!

Jesus came and began

 to make my life BRAND NEW!


His spirit came in and did a powerful

 work throughout!

I soon knew what abundant living was all about!


It’s about living for Jesus, one day at a time.

I now have an eternal love filling my mind!


I Thank Jesus for removing what held me!

The Holy Spirit came, and his presence filled me!


I Bless the Lord for the mighty

works he’s done!

All glory and honor to God the father,

 spirit and son!

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!
