Jesus, Help Me to Be More Like YOU!


Jesus, help me to get rid of what

 doesn’t belong.

It seems like things in me are

turning out wrong.


There’s some things that I should not do.

Please teach me how to be more like YOU!


I need your words for much needed direction.

By y our spirit, I need needed Godly correction.


I know I’ve stumbled and failed you many times.

I’ve filled my life with things

 that destroy my mind.


I ask for your forgiveness to now be applied.

It’s only in you that I can be full and satisfied.


Thank you Lord, for listening to my prayer.

I know you’re with me and that you care!


Being more like you is where I need to be!

I need much more of YOU

and a lot less of ME!

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!
