Wasted Years...

Wasted Years...
 
Jesus...  I've been wasting my
 time on foolish things.
Not living
a godly life,
 nor having the joy it brings.
 
How much of my time...
 With God...  Is actually spent?
I've never thought of what a
commitment to God actually meant.
 
I need to spend more time in
 God's word.  And in prayer.
Forgive me dear Lord.
 I didn't even care!
 
Even 10 minutes with you Jesus
 is more than what I've given.
Living for you...  all of the way.
Is how I should be livin'!
 
 My God... My life, I give
 you complete control.
By your precious blood,
 I can be made whole!
 
My time with you is so
 important to me!
In finding freedom in Christ. 
I have been set FREE!

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!
