Being Closer To Jesus...

Being Close To Jesus…


One thing you need to know

most certainly…

That as a Christian,

we need Godly maturity.


You need to have  Holy Spirit'


Let’s be filled with God's love.

not discouragement..


Time for prayer and Bible

 reading must be spent.

Our commitment to Christ

 must be 100 percent.


Let’s not "pretend"

to be God's child,

and act "cool."

It's God that you'll

never fool.


Take a stand for Jesus

"in a world gone wrong."

Though we are weak. 

Christ remains strong.


We don't know what

 tomorrow will bring.

That's why living for Jesus is

 the most important thing.


Make a total decision for

him all of the way.

He'll never disappoint you now... 

Or any day!

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!
