What Jesus Did for Me!

What Jesus Did for Me!


Someone asked; “what did Jesus do for you?”

I answered; “he came and made my life brand new!”


I cried many nights in a hopeless situation.

I was lost and confused, with no explanation.


I was lost and trapped…  With no way out.

I thought; “Is this what life is all about?”


After many nights in hopeless confusion…

I realized that much of what I tried, was an illusion.


An illusion filled with broken promises and dreams.

I was at the end of life’s rope…  And tried everything!


The satisfaction I was seeking, was there no more.

I begin to wonder if life was worth living for.


But then, a voice spoke to my heart, very sincere!

And soon, the dark clouds of life began to disappear!


This voice, I knew, must have been from God above.

He spoke to my heart words of comfort and love!


I decided to give Jesus my heart, my life and soul.

He brought a true happiness that made me whole!


That day….  He began to totally change my life around!

A glorious and wonderful friend, I have found!


I praise him and bless him! For what he’s done for me!

He came, and has given me life abundantly!


What he’s done for me, He can do for you!

Won’t you reach out to him?  He’s reaching out to YOU!


By the power of his love…  You can be forever changed!

You can find anything you need…  In his precious 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!
