Help Me Jesus to Be More Like YOU!

Help Me Jesus to Be More Like YOU!

How can I be what God wants me to be…

If I’m living in sin, and have no victory?


How can I live like God wants me to live…

If I hold on to bitterness, and don’t forgive?


How can I live as a Christian should do…

If my life, through Christ, is not renewed?


How can I keep going and pretending?

If my heart needs a spiritual amending?


How can I do it?  Without Christ…  I’m lost!

Help me Lord to focus on the cross!


To live is Christ...  To die is to gain!

There’s an overcoming life I need to obtain!


I must serve Jesus and surrender my will!

A life of godliness must be instilled!


I must give him one hundred percent!

And come before him, and humbly repent!


Please take my life Jesus!  And all that’s in it.

My heart and soul...  I freely give it!


Jesus, I ask to have you way in me.

I want to know you so abundantly!


Your words of truth have expressed…

Living for you, is always the BEST!

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!
