Why Not Spend a Moment with Jesus?

Why Not Spend A Moment With Jesus?

Many live to please themselves for the moment.

And want to do whatever gives them enjoyment.


The pleasures of life often lead to deep addictions.

And bring into their life unneeded afflictions.


As many live for whatever things may please them.

They’ve allowed a lot of things to fool them.


Many families are being ripped apart and torn.

As any sense of godly morals are often scorned.


As God looks into the heart of man…  What does he find?

The heart is deceitfully sinful in all of mankind!


He sees many lives off course, following a very dark trail.

And knows that everything in life shall one day fail!


As many seek instant gratification for each day…

Perhaps they should take a moment and really pray!


Let’s ask for God’s forgiveness and a healing within.

And seek him now to be cleansed from our sins!


Please come dear Lord!  And touch our life from above!

We need to be satisfied and content with your love!


A moment with Jesus can bring a love that’s overflowing!

An abundant life from him, is what we can be enjoying!


Please come Jesus!  Bring a heart changing revival in this land!

May we build our lives on the rock!  And not sinking sand!


There’s one more thing the word of God wants to tell you!

Jesus brings complete satisfaction, and will never fail you!

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!
