How Can You Give What You Don't Hav
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

How Can You Give...
 What You Don't Have???
 
How can you give Jesus to others...
when you're "empty?."
Nothing inside... but on the outside...
you pretend to have "plenty."
 
This Jesus you often talk about...
 is absent from your life.
One that is filled with emptiness,
bitterness and strife
.
 
You need to surrender and give
Jesus complete control.
His presence can fill you...
 and bring comfort to your soul.
 
Then you can reach out
 to others every day.
You'll be more like Jesus
in what you do and say.
 
When you're filled with his love...
you'll be able to give too.
As a child of God...
This is what you're told to do!
 
This world is lost and dying...
 and needs Jesus more than ever.
Where your heart is...
there will be your treasure!
 
Hunger and thirst for God's
righteousness deep within.
Allow the Holy Spirit's fire to
consume your every sin.
 
As you have victory... will your life
be a "fountain of joy."
Things of God will be important...
and his presence you'll enjoy!
 
Others will want the life-changing
 power in you...that they will see!
Then will you have an impact
for Jesus  throughout eternity!

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!
