What Have I Done For Jesus?

What Have I Done For Jesus???

Iím trying to remember the things Iíve dreamed ofÖ
There so much I havenít done, that I can think of!
Iím trying to remember when I was just a young boyÖ
There were things in life that I really enjoyed!
But, as I grow older, and itís all done and saidÖ
I feel more aches and pains each time I get out of bed!

This old body of mine is growing very weary and old.
I donít have a lot of time, as I have been told!
Thereís one area in life, where Iíve fallen short of a goalÖ
I havenít given God a chance to redeem my soul!
I suppose Iíve been too prideful and stubborn at bestÖ
I need to give God my life, and let him take care of the rest!

Dear Jesus, I come to you now and confess my sinful ways!
I accept you as my Lord and savior, for the rest of my days!
Please come lord Jesus, and bring your healing deep within!
Cleanse and change me, and take away all of my sin!

Youíre what I need! †And are truly my best friend!
How I love and appreciate you! †Again and again!

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!
