As I Look Back...

As I Look Back…


As I look back and think about

where I’ve been.

It’s hard to believe that I’m

 still here again!


I think about the many things

 that I’ve been through.

And ask myself the question;

“what am I going to do?”


With the trials of life,

come many frustrations.

A life filled with uncertainty

and many “incompletions.”


It’s almost like riding the waves

 of life’s stormy sea.

Never knowing where the next

wave will take me!


Everything  I have... 

And everything I’ve done…

I lay at the feet of Jesus.

 God’s precious son!


I ask you Lord for mercy! 

 I come to you now!

I come before your majesty

and humbly bow!


You have brought completion

and wholeness within!

You’ve given me a “new life.” 

I’m born again!


I love and thank you Lord,

for your hand extended!

The beauty of your holiness

 is to be commended!


You brought to me hope,

 in a hopeless situation!

And have given to me

the wonderful gift of salvation!

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!
