I Didn't Deserve God's Love!

I Didn’t Deserve God’s Love!


God gave me his love.  I didn’t deserve it.

What he did for me.  I quickly observed it!


For my mistakes, I had only myself to blame.

God removed all of my sin,

guilt and shame.


My old self and the lifestyle I had lived.

Was the only thing to him that I could give.


He transferred my sin into his love sanctuary.

It was like he gave my past an “obituary .”


He calmed my worries, hurts and fears.

And gave a hope and peace that’s secure.


He brought to my body an inner healing.

And gave me true love most revealing!


His compassion was evident and very real.

His presence inside of me, I could feel!


God offered his salvation.  I received it!

He loves me so much!  I truly believe it!


Thank you God!  For giving me

 a second chance…

Thanks for loving me! 

Whatever the circumstance!


God didn’t give what I deserved...

 But what I needed!

With him in my life now…

 I am totally completed!

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!
