God Gave Me His Love; I Didn't

God Gave Me His Love...   I Wouldn’t Share It!


God gave me his love.  I wouldn’t share it!

The guilt I feel now.

I can’t hardly bear it!


He gave to me blessings and a peace within.

He gave to me joy and a chance to be his friend!


He asked that I give to others what I received.

His life for others is what he’s achieved!


When God needed me, I tried to run and hide.

I was filled with selfishness and pride!


Though I had accepted him

and was born again…

I wasn’t interested in

reaching souls for HIM!


Deep inside me there was a voice

 that began to stir!

Christ helped me to have

  Victory so true and secure!


He helped me with his words of love spoken…

I wanted to be his vessel! Not just a “token.”


His spirit is with me each day that I live!

I want others to know of his power to forgive!


Won’t you share the love that he’s given to you?

Won’t you give back to the one

 who truly LOVES YOU?


His love is everlasting and hard to contain!

You’ll find all that you need

when you call on his name!

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!
