The Cross before Me! The World beh

The Cross Before Me…  The World Behind Me!

The cross before me… The world behind me.

Wherever I go, God’s love will find me!


May the work of the cross be what motivates me…

Each day, may Christ’ compassion fill me!


May the message of the cross speak loud and clear…

Christ is always with me!   I’ve nothing to fear!


May it’s message of mercy and grace speak thru my living.

May Christ be honored by a heart

of thanksgiving!


If I’m looking to the cross, I’ve no reason to look back.

The blood of Jesus will protect me

from Satan’s attacks.


If I put my trust and faith in the cross, and it’s meaning.

The power of the cross is what I’ll be receiving!


May the cross remind me to read God’s word each day.

It’s one thing to listen to him. 

It’s another to obey.


Thank you Lord for the work you’ve done and want to do.

May I be convicted to take my cross and follow you!


The cross reminds me to give Jesus my every burden.

It speaks to my heart, that his faithfulness is certain.


May the cross of Christ speak peace

and freedom today!

And be a reminder to touch me,

 in what I do and say!

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!
