God Knew Me Before I Was Born!

God Knew Me Before I Was Born!


God knew me, even before I existed!

He was there, before my name was listed!


Before I was born, he had a divine plan!

He was there, before I reached out my hand!


Before I knew who I even was, or my name…

His life for mine, way why his son came!


Before I could put on my shoes and clothes…

God had called me!  It was I… That he chose!


Before I was old enough to make up my own mind…

He was there waiting!  So patient and kind!


Before I became an adult…  I refused to believe!

Whatever God offered...  I didn’t want to receive!


Before too long… I had my own family and home.

But then family left me...  And I was alone!


Before God, I came, and cried and repented!

The inside of my mind felt confused

 and tormented!


Before I really knew what was actually going on…

God reached inside and forgave me of past wrongs!


Before the next day was coming about…

I found a new love and peace throughout!


Before God, I know that he’s changed me!

I have found a new life for eternity!


Won’t you come before God and accept him too?

You’ll never know what he can do for YOU!

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!
