Only Jesus Can Bring the Victory!


There was something in my life that I had a hold of.

It was something that God told me to let go of.


He was tired of the excuses that I was making.

It was his command of holiness that I was forsaking


I know how easy it is to be filled up with pride.

Trying some of the things in life to be “satisfied.”


I know he’s not happy by the sin I tried to “cover up.”

It’s easy for sin cause me to stumble and “slip up.”


No matter how spiritual others think I may be.

God’s spirit can see everything inside of me!


Please forgive me Jesus.  I’ve sinned against you!

I’m so sorry for what I’ve done.  I really need you!


Please remove the desires that cause me to stumble.

Help me to fall in love with you and stay humble!


Please take away the things that bring you shame.

And help me to live in honor to your holy name!


You are and will always be most gracious and kind!

I ask for you to bring your love and cleanse my mind!


Thank you dear Jesus for listening and blessing me!

Your loving hand has reached down and touched me!


You’re my savior!  There are none that are like you!

 I want to take the time to know and love you!


I invite you to know this Jesus that changed my soul.

It’s only in him, that one can be made whole!


Won’t you accept this wonderful Lord as your friend?

And find out where a victorious life really begins!

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!
