As a Young Boy...
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

As A Young Boy…

I once loved to tell others of Jesus

as a young boy.

My heart was filled with

love, prayer and joy.

Talking about Jesus, I had spent.

I loved to talk about him,

everywhere I went.

As the years went by,

I started growing old.

The things of God, I had no longer told.

A coldness in my heart began to brew.

Even God’s word-I no longer knew.

I only talked about God to

people in the church.

But in my heart was a hunger for a new search.

A search to return to Jesus-my long lost love.

I fell on my knees and cried to God above.

As I began to confess to God everything.

A newness to my life I knew he would bring.

I began to feel his love come all over me.

The chains were now gone...I was set free!

If a coldness for Jesus dwells in you.

Remember his love is steadfast and true!

Return to him to cleanse you within,

And experience the joy of being born again!

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!
