God Wants to Change Me!

God Wants to Change Me!


God let me know, that he wants to change me.

It wasn’t I, but the Holy Spirit that found me!


He gave me his word and said I need to obey it.

I want to know his word, so I can share it!


It was so powerful, that day he spoke to my heart.

I was so excited, I didn’t know where to start!


The creator of this world, came to see me!

 I can now feel his love, flowing through me!


His son Jesus, made a way for me to be with him.

I received this assurance, the day I received him!


Thank you Lord God, for your mercy divine!

You’ve brought forgiveness and are so kind!


What would I do, if you weren’t by my side?

You know all about me…  I’ve nothing to hide.


You’re the one who can bring hope and healing.

I now have inside me, true purpose and meaning!


A purpose and meaning, to press on and keep going.

As my relationship with God, I want to be growing!


Thank you dear God for being the best friend I know!

You’ve brought a change in me,

and comfort to my soul!


You are and will always be the one I’ll need.

Help me to obey and listen to the direction you lead!


I shall follow and obey you

 the best way that I can!

You’re always with me,

and won’t let go of my hand!

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!
